Once known primarily as a vacation or retirement destination, Sarasota is now the "crown jewel" of Florida's
SunCoast offering sophisticated arts, world-class shopping and dining, and every imaginable sports venue with both public & private golf courses, some among the best in Florida.
If fishing, sailing or scuba diving are your kind of fun, you can't find a better place to live. And then, add a constant flow of community events and year-round good weather and Sarasota ranks among the nation's 15 "most livable communities," according to Money Magazine.
And don't forget Sarasota's barrier islands, Lido Key, Siesta Key, and Longboat Key where you'll find the finest beaches in Florida.
Sarasota is a great place to raise a family. Our public schools serve over 40,000 students and there are also private schools. Nearly 80% of Sarasota teachers have post-bachelor degrees. Two-thirds of area high school graduates go on to college;
some at local institutions including University of South Florida - Sarasota, USF - New College, Ringling School of Art & Design and State College of Florida - Manatee & Sarasota.
It's been said that Sarasota has all the charm of an "old southern town" with all the conveniences of a big city.
