Public Art tour in Sarasota
Sarasota is known for its support of the arts and riding in the trolley and getting to see so many amazing murals and sculptures throughout the city was SO interesting! We have vacationed down here for over 30 years and yet have missed seeing so much art!! I highly recommend this fun tour. — Judy
