The 410-acre resort is located on the barrier island of Longboat Key, a 15-minute drive from Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, and within a short distance of many of Sarasota’s family-friendly attractions, including the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium.
The Ringling Campus, which includes the magnificent Venetian-inspired home of John and Mable Ringling, the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, and the Circus Museum, is a 15-minute drive away. Kids will love the “world’s largest miniature circus,” which took 50 years to complete and is housed at the Tibbals Learning Center.
A five-minute shuttle ride from the resort lands you at St. Armands Circle, a shopping area filled with boutiques, restaurants, and more than one ice cream shop.
