The summers are too hot for some. Those that can afford it become snowbirds.

Sarasota sounds like a great fit for you. Active and vibrant, but much smaller than Tampa. The BEST beaches, e.g. Siesta with its sugar-white sand. If you like a smaller town, head 20 minutes south of Sarasota to Venice...a charming small town on the ocean. There's actually a walk/bike trail that links the two cities!

On the east coast of Florida, St. Augustine is hopping, beautiful, and culture abounds. You'd have to be OK with tourists, though. Palm Coast is very close by. Less hurricane risk here.

Or, if you'd consider central FL, check out charming Mount Dora. It's a lake town with water views everywhere hat actually has rolling hills. It's just 30 minutes to Orlando, 1 hour to New Smyrna Beach, and 2 hours to Tampa.

Good Luck!!
