OK, I used to live in zip code 33952, on Deedra St when my oldest daughter was little. Probably the closest exit if you're heading north would be Toledo Blade, which is the dividing line between Port Charlotte and North Port. I'll tell you right now the drive gets really old, really fast. When I lived there I worked of the Sarasota Sheriff's Dept in downtown Sarasota. That's pretty close to where you're going at Sarasota Memorial. It's about an hour or so on the road each way. Getting on the interstate and coming off on Bee Ridge Rd was really frustrating in the winter with all the snow birds.

Moving on to neighborhoods-this is what I would do if I were you. Go there after 5 o' clock and look around. Take a visit on the weekends. Pick up the local newspaper The Charlotte Sun and look in the "police beat" section. Do you see those streets mentioned a lot? Call the local police and ask if they get a lot of calls in that area. When we lived in that neighborhood we owned our home but many of our neighbors were renters.

I moved from Charlotte county to Sarasota county once my oldest was of school age. We moved primarily for the Sarasota county school system. Having said that, I believe Neil Armstrong is the elementary school for that area. Depending on exactly where you are in the 33952 zip. I think it splits into two different schools. Neil Armstrong is probably one of the schools in the district that has a better technology/computer program. It was a "C" rated school but I think they have brought their rating up to an "A" school since I've left.

Good luck with whatever you decide

In other words, because you never say bad things about neighborhoods. Is you wouldn't live there!
No follow up to this is necessary, since I know you pretty well.
I think others will get the hint.

We just bought in 33952 and LOVE it. I grew up on a small lake in MI, and have boated on Lake Michigan now for 10 years, so give me a body of water in my back yard and I'm a happy guy

33952 is a wide area. Homes vary, depending on exact location.
