If you have a great job in Sarasota then it is an easy choice to live here. There is a reason we have all the buzz. I know a lot people that moved from NYC to Sarasota and have expressed it is the best place to live outside of the 5 boroughs. Others come from Philly or Chicago and they love it too. It has a larger feel than the population would indicate. It is a culturally vibrant, cosmopolitan city on the beach. Could it be any better? :-) Downtown, Lido or Siesta Key are 3 great options you should consider. Tampa is a larger city, but it doesnt have the same vibe. Drop me line if you like. Best Wishes!

Default i agree, you will love Sarasota

A lot of people, including me, think that Sarasota is the cultural capital of Florida. Tremendous infrastructure created as a legacy from the circus folks, who headquartered here. Downtown is really quite interesting and urban, without the bad stuff. Lots and lots of good neighborhoods to choose from - just don't live out near the Interstate if you want to avoid the older, golfing crowd. Siesta Key and other neighborhoods west of US 19 are great. The reality is much better than the stereotype i had (and sounds like you share). Good luck.
