Just want to know from some. What cities are just like Sarasota only with 1 million people or more?

Im gonna go with a projection list but not entirely sure but I would say in order:

San Diego
Phoenix

If including Bradenton in the mix:

Tampa
Atlanta
Las Vegas
Miami


I wouldnt throw Las Vegas in there or Houston since ghettos are a lot of places in Las Vegas and Houston. Id say SD gets the nod from what I read peoplewise anyhow and the fact theres very few ghettos there makes the comparison more I think. I wouldnt be surprised if Downtown Sarasota was like downtown SD only smaller.
If Bradenton is included in this bit, Id say Phoenix is what it could be like.

Sarasota Has a BEACH

How can you compare ATL, Las Vegas, or Phoenix to Sarasota? Sarasota is on the coast. None of the above are. You need to define in what ways you are comparing Sarasota.

Peoplewise I was thinking moreso. At least the places I put first on each list has a beach. Does that count?
Weather is not part of this equation though.
I am looking at palm tree based cities mostly whether they are dryer or cooler than Sarasota or not.

Go to www.city-data.com (not the forum) and you can look up each city and see much info about each one. A very good resource.

ATL does not have palm trees and it is generally in the 40's or 50's for a high in the winter. It has a mild four season climate, but is not tropical.

Oh San Jose could be another possibility based on things to do which is considered to be boring there compared to SF or LA. Sarasota I look at as a place with very minimal things to do but still, a few things to see and a place to make the best of before going to a real good city, much like one could see San Jose as well. The pitstop before the next big thing IF YOU ARE YOUNG AND SINGLE.

Click here, the skyline seems like this could be a bigger sarasota too. A real short skyline.

Answer to original question. NONE And if in the future, a comparison can be made, it would be time to move to Arcadia.

Does that solve the riddle?
