John and Mable Ringling could have selected any Sarasota neighborhood to build their Ca’ d’Zan residence, and they chose this location above all others. Set north of downtown, west of the trail, and on Sarasota Bay, the Museum area includes the Ringling Museum of Art, and the Ringling Circus museum. This area is dotted with historic homes from the 1920’s, classic Florida bungalows, and newer mansions. The bayfront setting provides the most magnificent sunsets. The Museum are includes some of Sarasota’s most desirable addresses, including the Indian Beach and Sapphire Shores communities. The Museum area is also home to the area’s colleges – Ringling College of Art and Design, New College of Florida, and the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus.
