My first time her to visit and was pleasantly surprised - got my local history lesson and toured a lovely mansion all in one. Since it was decorated for Christmas, I was fortunate to see it at its best

This is a must see while you are visiting Sarasota. Not only the house and furniture are beautiful but the grounds as well. The landscape crew does a fabulous maintenance job.

John Ringling and his wife Maple lived there for a while ... In fact, John R. adorpted Sarasota City and at his death, e'vthing was given to the City ... for education. It's a beautiful palace, rich history and fine arts.

Beautiful places to visit and spend the day. The Mansion on Sarasota bay is so lovely. Great restaurant to enjoy lunch, and when you are finished, check out the Gift Shop for interesting items.

you should not miss the Ringling Museum, Ca d'Zan Mansion and the circus museum when you are visiting the Sarasota/ Bradenton area. Ever expanding art collection, outdoor spaces to explore that include electric car transportation for those who need or want it. Take a good part of the day to visit this gem on the west coast of Fl.

Beautifully maintained sea side mansion of the Ringlings. Easy to appreciate how life was that that time, I'll be at from a very wealthy standpoint. Beautiful grounds and home for that era. Well worth seeing. An easy visit to walk around.
