It's a neighborhood that's as diverse as it is beautiful. It's a place where the old meets the new, and where you can find anything you want—whether it's a quiet morning jog along the bayfront or an afternoon in which you enjoy high tea at the Ritz-Carlton.
Downtown Sarasota can be anything you want it to be.
It's tree-shaded Main Street, filled with shops, restaurants, cafes, and gourmet food stores. It's Palm Avenue, with its boutiques, salons and art galleries. It's Burns Court and Towles Court—the antique stores and darkened art cinemas that are perfect for an evening out on the town. And those are just some of the ways Downtown Sarasota is uniquely yours.
If you're looking for residential opportunities that match your needs and desires? You'll find them here too: from apartments overlooking Lake Sarasota to luxury condos overlooking downtown; from historic homes within walking distance of local restaurants to brand-new estates tucked away behind gates in a private community; from waterfront properties just steps away from the beach to historic homes perched high above everything else around them on stilts; there really is something for everyone when it comes to living in Downtown
Sarasota is a city teeming with live theater, internationally-acclaimed opera house and art museum, a soul-stirring symphony and soaring ballet. Fabulous places to dine as a prelude—or postscript—to a night on the town. New York? Maybe. Except, throw in a challenging round of golf in the morning, a powdery white beach in the afternoon and a blazing sunset over the Gulf of Mexico to launch an evening's worth of exciting possibilities. This all adds up to Sarasota—Florida's ‘‘suncoast’’ and cultural capital—where days begin at the water's edge and spill into downtown after dark.
The beaches here are just as enticing as they are in the rest of Florida: powdery white sand stretches for miles along endless blue waters, creating an idyllic backdrop for any activity you choose. If you're looking for something more adventurous than sunbathing, try parasailing or kayaking; if you'd rather relax with some friends while enjoying a drink or two, stop by one of our many fine dining establishments.
Walkable, historic, and chic—it’s easy to see why downtown Sarasota has become the place to live. From the bungalow-rich side streets of vintage neighborhoods, to opulent new bayfront condominiums, downtown Sarasota offers a walk-able lifestyle that oozes with casual tropical charm, the distinct aura of history, and the excitement of all things new.
