Visit Sarasota Arts

The arts just come naturally in Sarasota. Is it the crystal blue waters or the warm, balmy air that artists and performers find so inspirational? Who knows for sure. But you will find it every night and day in our performance halls, theatres, opera house and galleries. Discover it yourself in Sarasota. You’ll see why we’re known as Florida’s Cultural Coast™.

Estero Island - "The beaches of Florida are among some of the most beautiful in the world. Our heart-felt and economic appreciation of our beaches should necessitate our involvement in protecting their environment. PLEASE don’t let anyone put oil wells offshore of Florida. I am from Southern California where one has to take paint remover to the beach in order to remove the oil waste from soles of our feet. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen to our beautiful Florida beaches." -Clyde Butcher
