Sarasota – The ideal winter home for Canadian snowbirds!
Sarasota is a city with a rich history of culture and the arts, not to mention the Ringling Brothers circus.
Built around Sarasota Bay, the area has gorgeous quartz sand beaches along its barrier islands of Anna Maria, Longboat Key, Lido Key and Siesta Key.
Beautiful, crescent shaped Siesta Key beach has earned the title of #1 beach in North America over the past few years.
Snowbirds love Sarasota for its extensive arts offerings including a symphony orchestra, an opera company, ballet and a vast array of performers at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. The vibrant downtown also has many excellent restaurants and boutiques to explore.
Baseball lovers can catch spring training in Sarasota, home to the Baltimore Orioles and in nearby Bradenton, home to Pittsburgh Pirates. There are dozens of golf courses in the area as well.
