Your tour will begin and end at The Ringling Museum parking lot, located across from the Sarasota/Bradenton Airport, where University Parkway intersects US 41/North Tamiami Trail. The tour will last approximately 2-1/4 hours. Your host, a professional circus performer, will regale you with circus lore and stories of life-on-the-road, while telling you about the sites you'll see along the way.
Those sites will include:
- The Charles Ringling Mansion
- St. Martha's Church: "The Church the Circus Built"
- Sailor Circus tent
- John Ringling's Railroad Car (The JOMAR) and Bob's Train
- The John & Mable Ringling Museums (Museum admission not included in tour price)
- The Circus Ring of Fame
- and much, much more
