The Gem of Florida’s Gulf Coast

Rolling white-sand beaches and sparkling azure waters combine with a sophistication and charm to make Sarasota the gem of Florida’s Gulf Coast. The center of the Theater & Arts District offers a world of experiences, including Main Street – the setting for numerous arts festivals, restaurants, and the ever-popular Saturday morning Farmers Market.

Just off Main Street, discover Palm Avenue’s fine art galleries, the famous antique and retro collectible shops of Pineapple Avenue, and the picturesque Sarasota bay front.

Catch an independent film in the 1920s styling of Burns Court, or watch artists at work in the galleries of Towles Court. Naturalists will love nearby Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, adorned in tropical plants from bamboo to colorful bromeliads to exotic orchids.

Shoppers bask in the world-renowned boutique shops of St. Armands Circle. And arriving soon, just 8 miles from The Founders Club, is The Mall at University Town Center, featuring Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fith Avenue and many more of the world’s premier retailers.

For those who crave the outdoors, Sarasota is home to boundless natural resources. From the pristine, powder-soft beaches of Siesta Key to offshore and flats fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay to the unspoiled landscapes of Oscar Scherer and Myakka State Parks, Sarasota is a vibrant and beautiful place to call home.
