Sarasota Named One of World’s 100 Greatest Places of 2021 by Time Magazine
Sarasota is included along with Cities Like Madrid, Las Vegas, Tuscany... Time says in part, “Miami has long held the reins on all things young and hip in Florida,” ... “But there’s something special percolating along the once sleepy Gulf Coast these days.”
Time says of their list... “extraordinary destinations to explore,” the list is presented in alphabetical order.
The only other Florida city on the list is Orlando.
Time magazine says in a press release that its third annual World's Greatest Places article is “curated from editor and expert nominations from around the world,” and that “the list recognizes 100 unique destinations that are offering visitors an extraordinary experience that’s unlike any other.”
What does Time Magazine have to say about Sarasota...
"Miami has long held the reins on all things young and hip in Florida. But there’s something special percolating along the once sleepy Gulf Coast these days. Celebrating its centennial this year, Sarasota is proving itself a vital cultural capital with the new Sarasota Art Museum of Ringling College, housed in the former Sarasota High School building, with exhibitions featuring the work of artists such as Robert Colescott, Charles McGill and Samo Davis. Phase 1 of The Bay, a project that will redevelop 53 acres of city land into a bayfront public park, is set to debut this year, including the meandering Mangrove Bayou Walkway, which opened in April, and the Sunset Boardwalk. And across the John Ringling Causeway, two upscale beachfront properties recently unveiled major renovations: the Lido Beach Pavilion and the Resort at Longboat Key Club, both superior spots to watch the sun set over the shimmering Gulf waters". —Brad Japhe
