DOWNTIME

A visit to Sarasota promises the splendor of sun, sand, and beautiful weather. Add to that a diverse array of recreational, cultural, dining, entertainment and educational activities and even the most adventurous visitor or resident will have a full calendar. The area's vibrant arts scene, anchored by the world-famous Ringling Museum of Art, is enriched by a nationally recognized opera house, ballet company, symphony orchestra, multiple theaters, galleries, and stylish restaurants.


The rich history, vitality, and breathtaking beauty of Sarasota has sent many a writer and artist scrambling to put pen to paper and brush to canvas in order to capture its essence. Sarasota is that rare kind of place that combines vintage small-town charm with boisterous big-city amenities in a way that makes it the envy of municipalities many times larger. There are few other communities on earth that offer the unique combination of year-round sunshine, pristine gulf beaches, a bustling economy, an energetic arts scene, and a sophisticated laid-back lifestyle.

Long known as a hub of cultural activity, Sarasota is brimming with an array of performing arts and cultural attractions. Residents and visitors can delight in a night of theater, opera, or ballet, or enjoy one of the many music, film, and food and wine festivals that take place each year. There is no shortage of shopping with unique boutiques, antique shops and galleries, and internationally known designer shops. For those in search of the sporting life, both active sport fanatics and casual sideline fans will revel in the diversity of recreational pursuits that are available to enthusiasts of all levels. The area boasts adventurous backwater and deep-sea fishing, kayaking, sailing, power boating, competitive tennis, and over 100 championship golf courses at all levels of challenge.

With their powder-white sands and gentle azure waters, Sarasota's barrier island communities of Longboat Key, Lido Key, Siesta Key, and Casey Key are truly special. Sparkling and beautiful miles of gulf, calm bays, and gentle inland waterways invite exploration. Then, at the end of each day, the glorious tropical sun sinks dramatically below the shimmering horizon. Enjoy one of our legendary sunsets and you'll understand why Sarasota has etched itself on the heart of so many newcomers from around the world and every walk of life.

Luxury residential opportunities are diverse as the eclectic neighborhoods in which they are found. From coastal castles to classic beachfront condominiums, idyllic golf course estates to downtown penthouses, the choices are as unlimited as the sun-filled days that stretch before you.
