Join the Sarasota Alliance for Historic Preservation as we explore the hidden beauty of Vamo Drive.

Stroll down Vamo Drive to explore the history of this enchanting historic neighborhood. A stately row of Mediterranean Revival homes dating from the early 1920s ending at the Vamo Lodge, a circa 1900 frame vernacular residence that served as the community hub of the bay front town for decades. Tours will be narrated and interactive, with a brochure that provides a digital window into the past. Learn about the settlement and development of the area, architectural styles and evolution, and the intriguing histories of those who have called the neighborhood home.
