Information About Sarasota, Osprey and Venice

As much as you'll be tempted to stay home at Bay Street Village & Towncenter, you'll want to experience everything that makes Sarasota County one of Florida's premier destinations. You won't have to travel far.

From the performing and visual arts, to endless recreation and nightlife options, to a vast array of educational and medical resources, you'll see what makes Sarasota the envy of many a much larger city. Yet Sarasota is still prized for its friendly small town demeanor and ease of accessibility. This means top-drawer amenities and big city conveniences-without big city hassles.

Live theater is right at home in Southwest Florida with any number of companies treading the boards nightly in Sarasota, Bradenton and Venice. For blockbuster Broadway Shows, touring symphonies and other big names in entertainment, take in a show at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Sarasota is also home to a world class symphony, a major American opera company and the ever-expanding John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, which houses an important collection of European master paintings, a one-of-a-kind circus museum and the magnificent Ca'd Zan, the faithfully restored bayside mansion once home to the famous circus magnate and his wife.

Much has been written about the beaches of Southwest Florida, but you'll have to see for yourself why so many visitors rave about our white powdery strands, azure blue seas and breathtaking sunsets. Florida's natural wonders unfold all around you with numerous state and county parks-including Oscar Scherer State Park and Myakka River State Park, the largest state park in Florida-within easy reach.

Bay Street Village & Towncenter puts you in the middle of everything even as it promises an oasis of tranquility for those moments when home, family or work matter most.
