Sarasota once again took a spot in U.S. News & World Report's 125 Best Places to Live in the USA, coming in at No. 18. Sarasota also ranked No. 1 in Best Places to Live in Florida and No. 3 Best Places to Retire.
This is no surprise to those of us who live here. Sarasota has elements of what many consider paradise. Warm temperatures year-round, award-winning beaches and a thriving arts and cultural scene have made Sarasota a go-to place for retirees and families, not to mention a handful of celebrities. The area continues to attract new residents with great restaurants and plenty of shopping options.
