Although Ellenton Gardens RV Resort offers residents enjoyable pursuits, such as hiking, fishing and crafting, the attractions of Sarasota are also nearby. One of the highlights of the city is The Ringling, which is a combination of a Museum of Art and Circus Museum.

You’ll learn all about how this iconic American entertainment started in the late 1800s. Thirty-minute tours are available daily at noon and at 1 p.m.

Be sure and visit Ca d'Zan Mansion, the gorgeous abode of the circus owners that offers a glimpse into a bygone era. You can choose from a guided or self-guided tour.

Strolling the grounds is also rewarding, as the lovely gardens and views of the bay make the area a relaxing place to explore. This is a great destination for a family outing.

Muse at the Ringling

After touring the museum and mansion, have a leisurely lunch at the Muse at the Ringling, a restaurant where you can eat on the terrace that overlooks the ponds. The menu has unique choices, and the soups are especially delicious. This eatery prides itself on its use of fresh ingredients to create dishes with an international flair.
