Lots to see. So make several visits if possible. The view from the dock is beautful as it overlooks the bay. A little pricey but still nice.

The grandeur of Baroque art spreads out over the acres that John Ringling purchased. His taste in fine art is well represented in this museum which sits on the bay. Try visiting CaDZan and imagine yourself back in time.

The museum is absolutely astounding. There is a miniture mock up of a real circus operation showing how facilities are set up to take care of over 1000 employees and how a tent is set up to house over 13,000 customers attending the show. On the same property is the mansion of Mr. & Mrs. Ringling. In addition is a large museum he built to house an extensive art collection. The first room displays four large Ruben paintings, and that's just the beginning. I would also like to mention that the restaurant on the property is absolutely outstanding.
