What Bert Has To Say About North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton Metro Area

Sarasota is an affluent resort community with an interesting history. In the late 1880’s, golf was introduced to the area from Scotland, and today, there are more than 30 golf courses near downtown. Leftover Scottish influence defines the appearance of many buildings. Led in part by the Ringling family of circus fame, the area became a top resort and real estate investment attraction in the 1920’s.
