Waterfront living in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties-with kids

Posted 10-08-2012 at 09:31 PM by SoFLGal

There are several park and beach accesses on Siesta. Here is a list of them: Siesta Key Parks - Sarasota Florida Recreational Areas
Many of the kids on Siesta go to Glebe Park, which is a 10 acre park that includes a covered playground, picnic area, soccer field, baseball field and basketball court. Some of my daughters friends play lacrosse at this park as well.

Many of the kids also enjoy skim boarding, skateboarding, fishing, kayaking, sailing, rowing and your more traditional...

Active 55+ communities in Sarasota and Manatee county

Posted 08-13-2011 at 10:37 AM by SoFLGal

If you're looking specifically to stick to 55+ in Sarasota county, these would be my suggestions. I put my top picks in bold green so they're easier to spot.

There are a few homes in Venetian Falls in Venice in the 2300 sq ft range. That's the only community I know of in Sarasota county that is 55+ and would have a home that size. You could get a 2500 sq ft home for around $285k. Unfortunately, the home is two stories. It has three bedrooms and two baths on the ground floor and a large...

Kayaking/ Paddle boarding Brushy Bayou, Lido Key

We left at about noon so we caught the high tide. We could see big clumps of coral and lots of fish swimming around on the flats. My hubby pulled up the empty...
