If you get a chance to visit the John and Mabel Ringling home in Sarasota, you will not be disappointed. This beautiful place is on the bay and is just spectacular.
#FindingtheUniverse This is the home of John Ringling. The exterior is covered entirely from imported marble from Italy Breakfast at a Florida airport... Don't forget to take some home for the Cat Sitter ! The Ca d'Zan mansion, home to the late John Ringling; a man who revolutionised the circus as we know it. Creating a world renowned travelling circus, who's stunts and performances thrilled audiences for years. Despite passing away in 1936, his legacy, The Ringling Brothers Circus, still perform and dazzle crowds to this very day. A guided tour of the Ca d'Zan is available for a reasonable price, packed with intriguing stories and rich history, combined with an abundance of exotic art throughout, I could not recommend it any more highly. Taken November 2014 on Thanksgiving weekend. At the back of Ringling Brothers mansion. Very nice view. Located at the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, the home of John Ringling is worth the small extra price if you go to the museum. They offer free days, and cheaper tickets online, so make sure to check the website before you go.
There is a ton of walking so bring water, and a hat, it can get pretty warm in the summer months.
