I love living downtown. It is vibrant, energetic and fun yet isn't too large. I have lived in a condo for several years and would not trade it for the suburbs.


Homeless people. Please fix it Sarasota!


In my opinion it is the best place to live in Sarasota if you enjoy the city lifestyle. This area of Florida has so much to offer.

Four Things to Know About Downtown Sarasota Real Estate

 Most downtown Sarasota real estate options in consist of condominiums.

 There aren't many single family homes downtown. See Laurel Park if you want one. 

 If you want a walkable lifestyle get as close to Main Street as you can.

 Many Realtors stretch the definition of "Walkable". Ask Us where to live downtown.




Downtown Sarasota Lifestyle Explained by a Resident

For me, a huge part of Sarasota’s charm is the cool combination of big city cultural venues and easy-going small town charm… and then of course, there’s the amazing waterfront! Day or night, there’s plenty to do, whether you’re into outdoor recreation, the arts or just daydreaming the day away on picture-perfect beaches. 

I love strolling downtown, roaming the shops and then stopping for a cup of coffee and a perfect pastry at Allegra at Whole Foods, my absolute favorite café. If you like a little entertainment along with your retail therapy, check out downtown’s First Fridays, monthly events when shops and galleries are open late with complimentary refreshments. Be sure to save some money for Saturday though, when the Sarasota Farmers’ Market opens up with loads of crafts, jewelry, local produce and awesome breakfast foods. My friends and I love to grab some fresh-baked muffins and fruit and head down to the waterfront for a little picnic in the grass.

Which brings me to one of the very best features of my favorite city – it’s right on drop-dead gorgeous Sarasota Bay. Cool mornings are perfect for walking the Ringling Bridge, cycling to Island Park or just packing up the car and taking the short drive out to Lido, Siesta or Long Key where sugary white sands fringe those gorgeous translucent Gulf waters. You can swim, sun, snorkel or rent water sport equipment for some seaside fun.

Flowers are everywhere here! The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens are the perfect place to while away a balmy afternoon among rare orchids, mysterious mangroves and glimmering koi ponds. If you want to be where the really wild things are, head over to the Sarasota Jungle Gardens where you can roam ten spectacular acres of tropical gardens or have a turn at holding an eight-foot Burmese python at the bird and reptile show!

Sarasota’s lively arts scene rivals that of any city in the country, just one reason it’s known as the Cultural Capital of Florida. Visit awe-inspiring museums and impressive galleries by day, or experience the wonder of artistic evenings. You can head to The Ringling Museum of Art’s after-hours event, Art After 5, for cocktails and a stroll through the exhibits, or check out Friday evening art walks at Palm Avenue, Towles Court and Burns Court for live music and open galleries and studios. 

You can’t be in Florida and not have a special sunset ritual, and one of my absolute favorites is combining beauty and exercise by walking the Ringling Bridge as the sun goes down. Once darkness falls and the city lights are twinkling, we sometimes take the dog, stroll down Main Street and slip into the marina to roam the docks, view the visiting boats or just watch the stars come out. 

The end of the day also signals the time for one of Sarasota’s very fine and very cheap happy hours – check out great views of Bird Key and super drink prices at Marina Jacks or go upscale with magnificent martinis under the umbrellas at Mattison’s. If you’re still hungry after all those delicious tapas, there are a myriad of restaurant options; Sarasota is truly a foodie heaven! You can dig into anything from Mediterranean fusion at chichi Mozaic to top-notch seafood at delightfully funky Owen’s Fish Camp.
