Similar to so many of its other historic neighborhoods, Sarasota's museum area mixes modern with traditional architecture. Patrons of the visual and performing arts and history buffs alike appreciate its proximity to the Ringling Museum of Art, the Asolo Center for the Performing Arts, New College and the University of South Florida. Homeowners are as eclectic as the selection of homes, ranging from retirees to artists and writers to young professionals and some of Sarasota's oldest families.
Facing Sarasota Bay some of the city's most impressive and stately residences are to be found in the museum area. And yet, there are smaller, meticulously-maintained homes along the quiet streets of the neighborhood. Towering trees and public parks along the bay add to the quaint charm of the historic area, which was once home to John Ringling and many of his family members, friends and business associates.
