When the downtown Sarasota area was platted in 1885, tropical street names were used to convey the spirit of this part of Florida. These names included Banana, Strawberry and Mango which are now Tamiami Trail, Ringling Boulevard and Central Avenue. Only Orange, Lemon and Pineapple remain from the original “fruity” names. Our citrus tour will take us north on Orange and back south on Lemon, and for fun we will add a slice of Pineapple. You will not want to miss this tropical walking tour!
