The Best Little City in Florida

The Best Little City in Florida

Long renowned as a coastal resort and retirement destination, Sarasota has become a sought-after first home destination as well. Florida’s low taxes, business-friendly climate and quality of life have been raising the state’s profile with out-of-state movers, and many are zeroing in on the Sarasota region, which boasts miles of waterfront, natural beauty and a thriving cultural scene. Sarasota, which is about an hour from Tampa and two hours from Orlando, continues to attract new residents with a favorable business climate, excellent schools, significant health care, exceptional sports, year-round outdoor activities, vibrant arts and culture, and high-end shopping and dining.


Sarasota  has won a multitude of accolades for its places to go, play, and dine. Here are a few of the kudos Sarasota has earned in the last year:
