CULTURAL COAST: Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice


The Cultural Coast is known for it’s cultural amenities that rival those of much larger cities. Home to artisans as well as art patrons, this area attracts visitors and residents from around the globe. Geographically defined by Sarasota, six barrier islands, and 35-miles of award winning beaches, here you’ll find the best of live performances, year-round festivals, and outdoor recreation.

Beyond the cultural attractions and sun-drenched beaches, our marinas, award-winning golf courses, world-renowned shopping, galleries, museums, and endless waterways will delight. Board one of the numerous deep sea charters, or lose yourself in the chic boutiques and galleries of St. Armands.  For the day, a week, or a lifetime, the Cultural Coast will capture your heart.


Residential communities throughout the area offer a blend of unique architecture and diverse lifestyle options. Charming historic neighborhoods and architecturally acclaimed mid-century modern peacefully coexist with downtown Sarasota’s high-rise waterfront luxury.  Step back in time in the quaint community of Anna Maria, or live grand in a waterfront estate on the shores of Casey Key. Numerous golf course communities provide for endless outdoor recreation, or enjoy sophisticated island tranquility in Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. Luxury housing is only part of the allure of this region. The diversity of the area’s residential options appeal to families, young professionals, celebrities, retirees and snowbirds.


A large part of this area’s rich heritage stems from the contributions of John Ringling, co-founder of “Ringling Brothers Circus”, as well as a great patron on the arts.  Explore the display of art and architecture at The Ringling Museum of Art, or relive the history of the Greatest Show on Earth at the Ringling Museum of the Circus. Whether you prefer comedy, drama, dance or music, live performances throughout the area appeal to all ages.  Explore the vast display of botanical brilliance at Marie Selby Gardens, enjoy marine life at Mote Marine Aquarium, or cruise the open waterway on one of the numerous sightseeing and sunset tours.
