Florida’s Cultural Coast: The Ideal Blend of Leisure and Culture
December 16, 2020
Spanning from the southern part St. Petersburg down to Port Charlotte, Florida’s Cultural Coast encompasses a richness of cultural arts and natural beauty. In addition to some of the nation’s best beaches, it garners its name from being home to a rich mix of performers, artists, galleries, theater, museums, music, film and architecture. Here’s why it the perfect place to live.
A Cultural Mecca
Longboat Key is centrally located on the coast in the heart of the Cultural Coast. It’s an ideal location close to everything that makes this area one of the most sought-after destinations in Florida. On the mainland, Downtown Sarasota offers Florida’s best array of arts, entertainment, shopping and dining. Residents can stroll the downtown streets and visit the art colony located in the Rosemary District just off Main Street. There are dozens of unique venues for dinning, and along Palm Avenue there are many distinctive art galleries, with rare, eclectic works from all over the world. The Ringling Museum and Ca’ d’Zan are not to be missed, and the whimsical purple Van Wezel Performing Art Hall is nearby on the bayfront. Selby Botanical Gardens is a tropical urban oasis located on the bay, and it has some of the rarest plants and flowers in Florida.
Crossing over to the barrier islands, St. Armands Circle, with its distinctive shops, restaurants, and art galleries, is a delightful destination for biking and walking. Incredible things are happening in the City of Longboat Key as it moves into the future, and all the new amenities have created a buzz the city has never seen. A new town center is in the works, and the Historical Society will be relocated into the town center. The city offers many natural amenities such as waterfront parks and walking paths that wind through the beautiful wetland canopy.
The Perfect Time
Living in Florida has so many advantages, and now is the perfect time to enjoy coastal living. The state has no state income tax, and the weather is pleasant year-round. It rarely dips below 60 degrees with sunshine all year long. Residents enjoy beautiful beaches, resorts, and many natural and cultural amenities.
For the health and environmental conscious homeowner, Sarasota encourages you to get outside and start exploring. Whether you want to walk the beach on Longboat Key, go birdwatching, or enjoy a day boating on the water, there is something for everyone to enjoy on the Cultural Coast. Health-conscious homeowners will find peace of mind in knowing there are four distinguished hospitals in the Sarasota area that are widely recognized for outstanding service. Sarasota Memorial Hospital is one of the largest acute-care facilities in the entire state.
