Sarasota, Florida is a sleepy fishing town turned tourist destination, made famous by powdery white quartz sand, crystal turquoise water, and the Ringling Brothers Circus. When the circus came to town, everything changed. Cottages were built, businesses opened, and the arts were celebrated.
Take a walk with me through downtown Sarasota. Things have changed so much already that this visit is like a nostalgic look back at 2017 in SRQ.
