Smartphone audio tours are one of the ways that tourism is becoming more modern, allowing thrill-seekers to discover the city in their way, at their pace. Sarasota is one of the many cities to have been caught up in the scavenger hunt audio tour fever, allowing for its extensive history and artistic culture to be on display for all to enjoy. When listeners download one of these tours, they can catch one of these exciting landmarks on their journey.
A scavenger hunt tour of Sarasota isn’t complete without a visit to Sarasota Bay. Serving as an arrival destination for yachts and charters, an exit port for those hoping to fish the Gulf of Mexico, and a spot for great romantic waterfront views, Sarasota Bay has been drawing residents and visitors since the beginning. End a great night with a visit to O’leary’s Tiki Bar, or stroll to the top of the John Ringling Causeway for views that can’t be beaten.
The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art
With its vibrantly colored street art and artistic flourishes on every building, life in Sarasota can truly be described as a circus, but only of the highest caliber. These are the influences that the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus brought with them when they spent their winters in Sarasota, and you’ll come by them often on your scavenger hunt tour. Owner John Ringling and his wife, Mable, also brought their own aesthetics to town, which can be seen in the gorgeously designed John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art. From Renaissance-era art to contemporary political works, it can all be discovered here.
While this landmark may not be on your tour itself, it may be hard to miss. Its dramatic silhouette can be seen rising against the sky from nearly every major Sarasota landmark. Amenities such as a private wine cellar for residents to use, a rooftop infinity pool, and a pet care area speak to the tastes of their residents. It even hosts a restaurant on the first floor created by a celebrity chef, where classic American dishes are served in unique takes. Renowned and new. Simple and extravagant. BLVD Sarasota is Sarasota itself.
BLVD Sarasota is now under construction and coming to life quickly. These residences start at $1.9 million and offer a landmark lifestyle in the heart of Sarasota’s downtown arts & entertainment district. With just 49 residences ranging from 3550sf to 5500sf, these residences will feature large wrap-around terraces, soaring ceilings, and a rooftop zero-horizon pool to capture the city views and expansive sights of Sarasota Bay. Spacious designs offer some of the largest floor plans in Downtown Sarasota. Residents also get to enjoy a rooftop zero-horizon pool, a wine cellar to store their favorite vinos, and a pet lawn on the fifth floor to take care of your furry friend with.
BLVD Sarasota residents are always just stepping away from Sarasota’s world-class entertainment, museums, art galleries, and restaurants. A future development titled ‘The Bay’ is working to deliver live entertainment, outdoor activities, and a gorgeously designed social center-right to the Rosemary District’s doorstep. Another future development titled The Quay will serve to fill a need for shops and entertainments within the Rosemary District’s area. It’s a great way for small businesses to promote themselves while also empowering Sarasota’s economy.
