While visiting Florida this is definitely a ‘must-see’ . These 66 acres are home to six extraordinary venues of history and art and sit alongside the Sarasota Bay with beautiful scenic views. Don’t miss the Circus Museum. It is amazing! You feel like you are part of the real circus when you hear all the sound effects of the horses, the ring leaders with their whips, and the crowds cheering – all while you are walking through the museum. And, you can tour the magnificent 56-room mansion and feel as though you have been transported back to the Roaring Twenties. There is a lot to see so wear comfortable shoes and plan to spend the day or come back two days. The Asolo Repertory Theater is the largest Equity theatre in Florida, and the largest Repertory theatre in the Southeastern US. There is a café on the premise serving food and beverages so take a break and relax in the shade! Plan to go early, as there is so much to see.
The Ringling is located on 5401 Bayshore Rd., Sarasota, Fl. 34243
