Best Neighborhoods in Sarasota FL

best neighborhoods in sarasota fl

Picture this: Waking up every morning to sit on the back patio of your new home. Would you rather have a view of your favorite golf course or of the ocean? It doesn’t matter which you choose, because both are beautiful. Here your days are spent whiled away on the golf course, playing a challenging match of doubles on the tennis court, boating, deep-sea fishing, reading on the beach, walking on the beach, and watching the perfectly white sand and clear blue ocean water turn gold as dusk closes and the sunsets from your seat on the patio of an oceanfront restaurant. You end each night with this view fresh in your mind and a glass of your favorite wine with your loved ones. It sounds pretty perfect, but you may not think people really live like that. 

In the best neighborhoods in Sarasota FL, everyone lives like that. Whether you are looking to retire, buy a second home for vacation purposes, or simply because you want to make a permanent move to the one place that’s closest to paradise, living in Sarasota is the perfect idea. If you want, you can spend every single day on the beach. Alternate between your lounge chair and the boat to do a little fishing, a little sunbathing, and a lot of relaxing. Don’t worry about the weather because it’s always gorgeous in Sarasota. If it looks like rain, give it five minutes to clear up because that’s how Florida weather works. The weather is warm all year, and the beach is always beautiful. 

If you love the nightlife, you’ll love downtown Sarasota. With numerous theaters where you can catch a live performance of your favorite shows, funky wine bars, elegant bistros, and decadent restaurants, you will find everything you want down here. During the day you can head to the Ellenton Outlets to find designer fashions at low prices so you always look stylish and sophisticated on the beach or on the boat. 

You can golf till your arms can’t move. Tennis is a sport everyone plays. Once you find a house in one of the best neighborhoods in Sarasota FL you will want to furnish it. This is when you’ll want to head to the beach and pick up antiques at the beachfront shops, art from local artists’ galleries, and décor from the many design shops located all over Sarasota. Living here really is a dream brought to reality for anyone. Once you come here, you never want to leave. If you do decide to make the lifestyle choice to move to Sarasota, consider a house with a few extra bedrooms because your friends and family from out of town will never want to leave.
