Sarasota makes the grade once again as U.S. News & World Report names the city #3 in its list of Best Places to Retire. Sarasota also ranks #34 in U.S. News' Best Places to Live.
U.S. News analyzed 125 metro areas in the United States to find the best places to live based on quality of life and the job market in each metro area, as well as the value of living there and people's desire to live there. Sarasota's beautiful weather, award-winning beaches and amazing arts and cultural scene are some of the reasons noted that make the area a popular destination for retirees and families.
