Why So Many People of All Ages Choose
to Live in Sarasota Florida
Posted January 16, 2012
Just for starters, Sarasota is "Florida's Cultural Coast", home to the renowned Florida West Coast Symphony, the Sarasota Ballet, and the Asolo Theater for the Performing Arts as well as many more theater venues
and art galleries. Downtown Sarasota offers dozens of shops, casual and fine dining restaurants and nightclubs. Throughout the entire year, special events are held including live music, art festivals, various shows and parades.
For sun and beach lovers, there are 35 miles of beaches including world-famous Siesta Key with the softest, whitest sand in the world. And nowhere in the world will you find more gorgeous sunsets than on Florida's West Coast
jewel of Sarasota.
For golfers, metro Sarasota Florida including Manatee and Sarasota County offers over 80 golf courses ranging from public courses to the most challenging public and private courses. There are golf courses to challenge every level of player. Many of the golf courses are surrounded by
golf course communities with a wide choice of homes, villas, and condominiums to choose from.
Boaters, day-sailors, scuba divers and fishermen will love the Sarasota offerings of every conceivable water sport, deep water marinas and yacht clubs.
Sarasota Florida also offers the widest possible variety of residential properties from downtown high-rise condos and penthouses to golf course communities and waterfront homes in every price range and to meet every imaginable
desire you may have. The island communities of Siesta key, Lido Key, Longboat key and Casey Key each offer their own unique lifestyles. St. Armands Circle, with its upscale shops and boutiques,
offers some of the most elegant shopping in Florida.
While some people think only of Orlando when they think of Florida, many more people choose to live in the Sarasota area including Osprey and Venice attracted by its lower congestion, more leisurely lifestyle
and its eclectic arts, cultural, dining and sporting amenities.
And, if your visiting relatives do want to visit Disneyworld and other Orlando attractions, they're a comfortable 1 1/2 hour drive from Sarasota.
In addition, the Tampa Bay area including St. Petersburg and the Florida Aquarium is less than a one-hour drive away.
