Visit UTC

So much to do and area attractions, too.

UTC is not called the "center of it all" for nothing. With over 200 nationally recognized and locally owned shops and boutiques, and nearly 100 restaurants and cafes, there's so much to enjoy. We're also steps from some of Sarasota-Bradenton's most popular destinations.

How to Get Here

Conveniently located right off I-75 and University Parkway, UTC is easy to find and truly in the center of it all.
