THINGS TO SEE & DO
Ringling Museum of Art
Make sure to spend some time at the Ringling Museum! Built by John Ringling to house his personal collection of masterpieces, it features paintings and sculptures by the great Old Masters including Rubens, van Dyck, Velázquez, Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese, El Greco, Gainsborough and more. The European, American and Asian masterworks available here make the Museum of Art an awe-inspiring retreat. It is a palace for treasures emulating the footprint of Florence’s Uffizi Gallery, echoing its grace and grandeur. The beauty of the Ringling Museum is not confined to the galleries – the grounds and gardens are also treated and cherished as works of art. Stroll the grounds and enjoy the Rose Garden, Mable’s Secret Garden, the Dwarf Garden, Millennium Tree Trail and other delights of the “estate by the bay”!
And speaking of John Ringling… The Circus Museum celebrates, what else, the American circus and it’s history and unique relationship with Sarasota. The first museum in the country to document the circus’ rich history, you’ll see colossal parade and baggage wagons, memorabilia and artifacts, sequined costumes and more that document the circuses of yesterday and today with the Ringling Family Circus being one of the best known!
Sarasota Jungle Gardens
Sarasota Jungle Gardens is one of the oldest continuously operating attractions in the State of Florida. Open to the public in December of 1940, the “Gardens” has retained its old Florida charm. A visit to the Gardens will bring back the memories of Florida days gone by. Sarasota Jungle Gardens features 10 acres of lush tropical vegetation, winding jungle trails and entertaining, educational bird and reptile shows throughout the day.
Mote Marine Aquarium
Mote Aquarium features a wide range of exhibits including a 135,000-gallon shark habitat, sea turtles, preserved giant squid, West Indian manatees, hands-on touch pools and exhibits featuring the world-renowned research of the adjoining Mote Marine Laboratory. New exhibits include the Seahorse Conservation Laboratory, where Mote aquarists raise baby seahorses for aquariums across the nation, and Sea Turtles: Ancient Survivors, which features live sea turtles and showcases Mote's efforts to study and protect these ancient creatures in the wild.
St. Armand’s Circle
St. Armands Circle continues to be one of Sarasota’s most popular tourist hot-spots! It’s located one mile from the hotel, two blocks form the Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful beaches of Lido Key, and just south of Longboat Key, one of the premier vacation destinations in all of Florida. Renowned as a continental marketplace, “The Circle” is a charming and graceful synthesis of past and present. You’ll find a variety of restaurants specializing in everything from burgers and fries to award-winning continental cuisine. Dine on the sidewalk and people-watch or enjoy fine dining in a romantic setting. Here you’ll find chic boutiques, art galleries and specialty gift shops offering fine jewelry, designer fashions, home accents and the truly unique. And when the sun and shopping become tiresome, relax and be pampered at one of our posh spas or salons where you’ll receive an array of soothing treatments.
