WHERE TO LIVE IN DOWNTOWN SARASOTA

Downtown Sarasota is popular among developers with new condo buildings adding to the skyline. Popular choices for residents and second-home owners are The Vue, which features stunning balconies overlooking the ocean, and brand new condominiums in The Mark, which sits at the apex of State Street, Main Street and Lemon Avenue, with retail space and a breezeway underneath. Downtown Sarasota is excellent for pet owners, with safe walkable streets, and many condo buildings allow small dogs and cats. 

WHERE TO EAT IN DOWNTOWN SARASOTA

When it comes to dining in Downtown Sarasota, there is no shortage of options. Choose from fine dining restaurants with white tablecloths in a traditional steakhouse setting at Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse, or opt for more of a scene at State Street Eating House + Cocktails. Many restaurants line Main Street, most of which are locally owned and frequented by neighbors in the area. Trendy coffee houses, casual lunch jaunts, and even craft breweries and wine bars are also popular in this area. If you prefer to cook in your chef’s kitchen at your new condo, Whole Foods is conveniently located in the heart of Downtown Sarasota, making it easy to run to the store for quick, healthy bites.

WHERE TO SHOP IN DOWNTOWN SARASOTA

Shopping is also another favorite pastime for Sarasota locals. Boutiques like Lotus, T. Georgianos Boutique, L. Boutique, and more showcase luxury items from stunning gowns for the high-profile social season to luxe jewels and couture. For the car enthusiasts, The Car Studio by Dimmitt features high-speed toys from Aston Martins to Mclarens. 

CULTURE IN DOWNTOWN SARASOTA

One thing that Sarasota is renowned for is its cultural scene. Sarasota is called the "cultural capital" of Florida, and for good reason. In Downtown Sarasota, you have access to world-class arts, from The Sarasota Ballet to the Sarasota Opera House. From October to December of each year, the area attracts out-of-state visitors with a seemingly international parade of operas, plays, symphonies and more. We advise booking your tickets in advance as the cultural season is a highlight here, and seats fill up fast. Additionally, for a more low profile look at the arts and culture in Downtown Sarasota, peruse local galleries featuring neighboring artists. On any given Saturday, you can enjoy an art show at a local downtown park featuring arts and crafts created by Sarasota vendors.

The Ringling museum, with its vast collection of artwork, is a big draw for domestic and international visitors. Ca' d'Zan, the former home of the American circus owner John and Mable Ringling, is a Venetian Gothic revival residence that overlooks the Sarasota Bay. 

FAMILY ACTIVITIES IN DOWNTOWN SARASOTA

It’s not all adult activities and fun in Downtown Sarasota. Believe it or not, there’s also plenty to do for the whole family! Bring the whole crew to the popular Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings for live music, fresh produce, delicious local food and activities. It’s a great way to meet new people and support local businesses. Additionally, the area is spotted with parks like Bayfront Park and Gillespie Park, where kids spend their days climbing on play structures and enjoying the fresh air. Selby Marie Botanical Gardens is another fun option for the whole family, with a Children’s Garden and thousands of species of flowers and plants to admire.
