10 Signs YOU'VE Been to Sarasota!

#10 You see that we're right on the Gulf of Mexico, but Sarasota County is 42.5% water and only 57.5% buildable land mass! There’s a water view or wetlands near most properties. OUTSTANDING!

#9 FOUR M-I-L-L-I-O-N people visit Sarasota each year. That’s 11 ½ times the total population. Tourism is a big deal and we DEAL BIG with Tourists! That's your Mother, your Brother, your Sister, your Father, Aunt, Uncle, Cousins... All welcomed with open arms and open doors!

#8 When you want to run away and join the circus, you have oh so many options to choose from… Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, Circus Sarasota, Sailor Circus

#7 In the moment the music moves you, you can dance ‘en pointe’, on the stage, on a wire or in the street and still call it all Art!

#6 The whispered chant is no longer ‘Land of the Newlywed and the Nearly Dead’... “We’re the Culturally Chic and the Techno-Sleek!”

#5  With your Mind on your Money and your Money on your Mind, you KNOW you can live confidently and comfortably in Sarasota because Money Magazine has just named Sarasota the BEST PLACE to RETIRE!

#4 Life’s a Beach and then you…TAN! on one of the 19 sandy shores of Sarasota County including Siesta Key, the Number One-rated Beach by Dr. Beach and Trip Advisor!

#3 After reading the latest Gallup Polls, you choose Sarasota, coming out on top as the BEST place for WELL-BEING ahead of Hawaii and California!

#2 Part of your well-being plan is playing golf on the over 1,000 holes (that’s 55 courses!), so tee one up and take a swing!

And finally

#1 When you see Cranes overhead, you know they are the Construction kind, NOT the Feathered kind…
