A retirement website, TopRetirements.com, came out with their list of top cities in the nation for retirement, and Sarasota is #1 on the list.

The website sited Sarasota's cultural activities, walkability, livability, reasonable home prices and general living costs and warm winters as reasons for the top spot.

Venice came in at #9 on the list for it's nice downtown, active adult communities, golf courses and reasonable home prices.

3 other FL cities also made the top 10, including Ft. Myers at #8.

I just saw that! Of course, I didn't need any list to tell ME it was the best place to be, retired or not!

Hope it doesn't bring TOO many new people, don't want this to grow into a mega-city - to me it's just the right size like it is!

Last year Dr Beach named Siesta best beach. About a month ago Princeton Review and USA today named New College 3# best value in the US. Sarasota is no doubt one of the best places to live in FL for people of all ages.
