Walk around downtown. If you aren't here, go to craigslist. If there is no phone number listed, it's a scam.

Is it my imagination or does "South of Fruitville and West of Tamiami" describe NOT-Downtown?

If you truly want a walking-friendly neighborhood, you will need to move to ACTUAL Downtown (Main Street area, EAST of Tamiami), Southside Village (probably what you're thinking of), or maybe Gulf Gate (quirkier, funkier, older).

I think the OP meant to say EAST of Tamiami?

GUlf Gate would seem to fit the requirements.

The downtown core is actually south of Fruitville, north of Mound (where US41 curves at the south end) and west of 301 (Mound joins 301 and becomes the Trail again there). We used to live in Laurel Park, which is right in this core. I consider this core to be the only truly walkable part of Sarasota where you have EVERYTHING you need for daily living and entertainment. But as Rushmore said, there are other smaller areas that are somewhat walkable like Gulf Gate, etc., even where I live in Whitfield is somewhat walkable being located right off the Trail; I can walk to my dentist, chiro, a few restaruants, etc. All depends how "walkable" someone needs a place to be.
