I've been offered a job in west Sarasota and wondering if it would be a "good" fit/place. I know its hard to say until you get their and experience it first hand, but just looking for any suggestions from locals. Talked a few people and each one said something different bout living there (I'd like it, Tampa is nicer, etc...). I know it would be a big change coming from Michigan (http://www.city-data.com/city/Kalamazoo-Michigan.html). I love the heat, outdoors, biking/running, going to different restaurants, etc. Thanks for your time!

You sound a lot like me, besides the fact that you're 24 and I'm 19. I moved down here like a week ago from NY. If you like the heat, this is the place to be. A lot of people bike and run during the day. St. Armand's is close and has lots of small shops and places to eat. I enjoy it here, but I miss the urban feel of NY.
