John Ringling Causeway

Connecting Downtown Sarasota and Lido Key since the 80’s, this causeway is one of the best spots for views of Sarasota.

For a fun side stop, make time to visit Bird Key Point to see the wildlife and charming small town.

Bayfront Park

With its multiple walking paths and waterfront access, this gorgeous park has esteemed the honor of being Downtown Sarasota’s natural escape. Take some time to stroll through the park after having dinner at local favorite Marina Jack’s, or launch a canoe from one of the docks and enjoy the amazing views.

EVOQ At Westin

Westin’s new bar and restaurant highlights the best parts of life – food, friends, and great views. The Jar of Pickled Veggies goes well with a Jai Alai IPA and will make for an Instagram-worthy shot.

People from all over the world come to Florida’s Cultural Coast to experience the art that makes this area so unique. Find out how to take on the Sarasota art scene like a local!

There’s no place that’s creative like Florida’s West Coast. Housing the ‘Sarasota Modern’ school of architectural design and serving as the winter home for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, the city of Sarasota is especially culture filled. Check out for some of these areas where artists are known to create and share their works.

The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall

The Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall has been bringing Downtown Sarasota live acts from all over, including Broadway plays and ballet productions. The theater is so important to Sarasota’s cultural canvas, that it’s being considered for the future development of upcoming entertainment complex The Bay. Make sure not to miss events such as Bob Dylan and Eddie Izzard in October!

See tomorrow’s artists, today at the six museums dotting the campus of this intuitively creative college. Featuring everything from guest artists and staff works, to senior theses. An upcoming show, A Tale of Two Cities: A Snapshot of the Mapping a Site: In and Out of Context Project displays a collaboration between faculty and students from both the Ringling College of Art and Design and art student from colleges around Europe. They were asked to ‘map’ their respective cities through art, sculpture, performance, and other creative endeavors; these works provide an image of the towns where they live.

Towels Court

Named by Coastal Living as one of the Top 10 Artist Colonies in North America, Towels Court is a shopping center where artists of all kinds gather to sell their works in their galleries. While the artists and their galleries tend to have their own hours of operation, you can find a majority of them accessible during the Gallery Walk, where artists and vendors sell crafts and food while live music plays in the background.

Art Center Sarasota

Serving as a multimodal unit for artists and purveyors of art for years, this is where art classes, artist interviews, gallery showings, and performances are shown. Check out the Salon D’Art, where you can meet with an artist and discuss their works while viewing them in a gallery showing.

Rosemary District

Funky and fabulous, the Rosemary District has been where Downtown Sarasota goes to get their culture. Keep your eye out for Italian Tradition, a restaurant that offers new takes on old Italian classics. Grab fresh produce and original part pieces at the Rosemary Sunset Market every Thursday evening. Within recent years, the Rosemary District has established itself as a business district as well, with the recent construction of open offices and workspaces, arts representation, and residence towers. The residence towers especially blend into the Rosemary District’s artistic vibe while also introducing their own aesthetic. Take the BLVD Sarasota residence tower for example: it utilizes contemporary colors and styles in its exterior design, while also expressing the artistic principles of the area.
