Sarasota: Imagine the Complete Florida Lifestyle


Sarasota03Sarasota combines Florida’s most leisure-centric lifestyle with the upbeat rhythms of a small, progressive metropolis. Its natural beauty begins where the turquoise seas of the Gulf of Mexico roll gently onto the magnificent powdery-white sands of its lush barrier islands; then spreads eastward to encompass miles of in-town neighborhoods, gentrified horse farms, large acreage properties and majestic state parks.

Speak to anyone who knows Sarasota and you’ll hear raves about the unexpected array of cultural amenities that have long-since earned the city the undisputed title of “Florida’s Cultural Capital.” You will hear of a town that fiercely embraces the performing arts: its own world-class opera, symphony and ballet, one of Florida’s greatest art museums and botanical gardens. Sarasota supports more than a dozen live theater companies, scores of gourmet restaurants and the finest names in luxury retailing.

For water devotees, there are miles of open Gulf waters, sprawling bays and scenic rivers that invite boating, fishing and kayaking. Meanwhile, our award-winning beaches will become your year-round playground.

Sarasota07On land, abundant recreational opportunities cater to every interest—including numerous golf courses that challenge every level of play. No matter how you choose to spend it, each sun-drenched day gives way to a spectacular Gulf of Mexico sunset, after which the curtains go up on Florida’s most eclectic blend of cultural fare.

Sarasota’s ownership and rental opportunities offer just as much diversity. From luxurious waterfront estates and golf course villas to charming downtown bungalows, sleek high-rise condominiums and multi-level town homes, there are choices to fit every lifestyle and price range.
