Named the "Best Small City" in the U.S. and one of the best places in the nation to live and work, Sarasota offers its residents miles of world-class white-sand beaches, plenty of cultural and recreational activities and an excellent quality of life. Sarasota offers the best of both worlds - small-town charm and big city amenities. Residents and visitors enjoy breathtaking sunsets, educational museums, operas, ballets, theater and other entertainment. And when it comes to recreation, Sarasota offers a full array of activities including everything from tennis and golf to fishing and boating.(more)
The beauty of Sarasota will get your attention on your first visit. If you see Sarasota first from the window of an airplane, the colors of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay, contrasting with the brilliant white sand of Longboat, Lido, and Siesta beaches, will make you anxious to see more. A rainbow of colors comes from the tall condominiums shining in the sun, the warm tile on the roof and patio of the mansion built by circus magnate John Ringling, the various green hues from the lush jungle-like vegetation, the flowers that are blooming any month of the year, and the lavender seashell-design Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall.
