Join us for History Hop, our annual week-long celebration of Sarasota County history in partnership with the Lemon Bay (Englewood) and Venice Historical Societies, and Sarasota County’s Historic Phillippi Creek Estate. Explore one community each day, or visit all three!

Each 2-hour tour offers guests a narrated tour of each community and the chance to “hop” off the trolley at various historic sites to learn from docents about each community’s history in Sarasota County.

Departure/Return Locations:

  • ENGLEWOOD History Tours on March 12 are led by Don Bayley of the Lemon Bay Historical Society, departs from Historic Green Street Church, 510 South Indiana Avenue in Englewood.

  • VENICE Circus Secrets Tours on March 14 led by Bob Collins, depart from the Historic Venice Train Depot, 303 East Venice Avenue in Venice.

A percentage of net proceeds will be donated to each participating partner to support the programs and services they provide that keep Sarasota County history alive.

ALL guests must be 12+. No children under 12 allowed except on family tours designed for children—The BooMobile and Christmas Carol Trolley. Every guest must have a paid ticket in order to board.
