Sarasota County is located on the Gulf of Mexico coast in southern Florida, south of Tampa. As of the 2010 census, the population was 379,448. The county covers a total area of 725 square miles, of which over 23% is water. The county was created from a portion of Manatee County in 1921. No one knows the origin of the name “Sarasota”, but it has been associated with the area from the beginning of area exploration by Europeans.

The county seat is also Sarasota, which is found in the northwest corner of the county along the coast. The largest city is North Port, at the far southeastern corner of the county. Tourism is an important part of the economy. Many wealthy families have winter homes in the area. The Baltimore Orioles, a major league baseball team, conduct spring training in Sarasota. The Ringling Brothers Circus used Sarasota, and later Venice, as its winter home for many years. The famous Clown College was started in Venice and later operated in Sarasota until it closed in 1997.  The area still has a strong circus tradition in parts of its culture.
