Sarasota has a large influx of snowbirds in winter which contributes to lots of traffic on the roads. It’s a nice place with relatively little crime. I highly give my positive review to move here and to become a full time resident. It’s a lovely place.

Sarasota is a beautiful city that rests along the Gulf of Mexico in sunny Florida. There’s so much to offer, from world-famous beaches to a thriving arts and culture scene. Sarasota also has premier opportunities for golfers and outdoor enthusiasts and top rated schools, making it a desirable location for families. There’s something for everyone in Sarasota, Florida.

Sarasota’s airport is very expensive compared to Tampa and Orlando. Keep in mind that the amusement parks are quite far as is the large military hospital. On the other hand, crime is little, life more relaxed. before packing, double check; are you still working or are you ready to retire?

Sarasota is a relatively quiet city. Most know it as a place people go to retire, but I think it is so much more that. There are several beaches and parks, which are great for those who love the outdoors. The area in which I live is bustling with people going shopping or to restaurants. Sarasota is a great city.

Sarasota is a great town to live and even more if you are a retired person. It’s a quiet place with so many activities to get involve in. Weather is great since we get very warm summers and that give us the chance to go to pools and visit beaches in summer.
