On the central west coast of Florida is a thriving real estate sanctuary better known as Sarasota. This formerly quaint city has made significant strides in its development from having a relatively small population of 150,000 to 365,000 residents as of 2006 and counting. Part of Sarasota’s widespread appeal are its acclaimed sun-kissed and sandy beaches on Siesta Key, Lido Key, and Longboat Key that stand as some of the best in the southern United States.
Neighborhood communities in Sarasota like Harbor Acres, Silver Oak and Oyster Bay have continued to flourish and come with a variety of single family homes, luxurious mansions and all inclusive condominiums each designed to appeal to a broad range of future Sarasota home seekers who want to bask in the Florida sunshine and live by the radiantly indigo ocean. Golf aficionados can choose from communities like Misty Creek and Bent Tree.
Condo owners and fellow Sarasota residents alike can enjoy a assortment of activities from fishing and boating at Turtle Beach Pier to daily live entertainment at the popular Gator Club. Local and international cuisines can be found everywhere in places like Mexican restaurant Two Señoritas and the traditional menus and drinks available at the waterfront Marina Jack restaurant and bar. Sarasota is constantly evolving and is increasingly becoming Florida’s preferred destination for single individuals and families seeking a quiet tropical retreat.
