These pictures are gorgeous! I have a question though. Since we are considering Sarasota for our relocation destination, what is the age group there? We are in our late 20's/early 30s. While we are not club-hoppers or night owls, we do like the occassional night out and we don't want to be surrounded by tons and tons of retirees.

I don't mean to be nit-picking here but City-Data says that the median age is 41. Median means that half of the residents are older than 41 and half the residents are younger than 41.

Since Sarasota is such a lovely place it is definitely a retirement destination. So there is a large section of the population that is over 60.
buckeyegal78 - I don't think that you have to fear being surrounded by tons and tons of retirees, amazingly the entertainment spots that attract a younger demographic don't attract many retirees and vice-versa. In addition you'll find that as the evening progresses the age drops.

Such beautiful pictures of Venice, FLBob thanks! I wonder tho why on beautiful sunny days, there's no one out shooting ball or walking or just out having a jolly time around their neighborhoods like we do up north here? I'd be outside and active. Maybe this is what makes so many on this board so darn cranky? Staying cooped up inside all the time? I would like to think most people don't move to beautiful sunny Florida just to live inside 24/7.

Don't let that word "retirement" get the best of you.
Many of us have difficulty with the image we see in the mirror.
This is an active place, with a whole lot of people who finally have the time to get out and enjoy life.
