This is a delightful and informative program. It is a great way to learn about the circus world and enjoy the beautiful city of Sarasota, FL.
I am so sorry the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus is phasing out because after spending the week learning all about it in Sarasota I am ready to join it !!!! Absolutely spell bound with all I learned !!
You will learn all about the ins and outs of the circus and the man who brought the greatest show on earth to the public. You will learn about why people are drawn to the beautiful city of Sarasota.

Linda from NY, NY Number of programs attended:24 Date attended: 01/31/16 - 2/5/16 From John Ringling's magnificent mansion, Circus Museum and Art Museum to being wrapped in a live albino python, I heartily enjoyed the Sarasota Signature City program with the darling Martin and Barbara Cohen as our group leaders in this lovely and charming city.
Very worthwhile. Good use of my time and resources. Encourages me to participate in more Road Scholar events.
Signature City Sarasota was most interesting and a fun and informative Road Scholar. The location was great and the participants were most friendly.
This tour is a great way to get to know a lively city on Florida's gulf coast.
The Sarasota Signature City Program offers a diversity of topics -- the highlight of which is the Ringling Museum of Art, Ringling Circus Museum, and Ringling home Ca'd'Zan. Presentations & videos offered very nice preparations before viewing Sarasota's downtown architecture, circus history, and more. The Selby Botanical Garden is small but is a gem with excellent orchid and bromeliad collections. Martin & Barbara Cohen are excellent hosts.
We just completed a week participating in the Sarasota Signature City Tour. It was great fun and we learned some interesting tidbits that we had not known before we came. The presenters were great and our group leaders....Martin and Barbara Cohen were fantastic!
