Paradise in Sarasota FL

Sarasota is on the west coast of Florida, south of Tampa. We visited the Ringling Museum, took a sunset cruise on Lebarge, and enjoyed lots of beach.

Lebarge is a party boat with live palm trees and mermaids. The boat sails out for two hours while you can have snacks and drinks, listen to some music and even dance a little. After the sunset it tours around Sarasota harbor before returning to the dock.

The Ringling Museum includes the Ca' D Zan, the summer house of John Ringling, a circus museum, and an art museum. The Ca' D Zan is based on a venetian design. No flash nor tripods are allowed.
