Sarasota, Florida


Sarasota, Florida, is the great Sunshine State arts center and this week's destination on The Gourmet Highway.

Come along with our host, Doc Lawrence, and tour of all John and Mabel Ringling, who gave to so many future generations.

You’ll find opulent gardens, fine art, their legendary home, performance stages and museums. "The Greatest Show on Earth" was born here.

Sarasota is home to great restaurants and chefs, including Doc’s favorite, the lovely and gifted Chef Judi Gallagher. 

This grand city is also the gateway to miles of beaches with fine sand and shallow waters, such as Lido Beach and Siesta Key Beach.
