For the risk-averse Posted On: 10/8/2009 7:26:26 AM
Sarasota is a clean, attractive, well serviced ciry, essentially middle class and up. It has an aversion to the new, and the challenging. The bulk of what passes for culture is mediocrity. the people have brand of snobbishness that
can be downright unwelcoming. Mostly Midwesterners, frugal, and with little curiousity about the world. A Republic run by and for for monied retirees.
Oddly, little overt prejudice, and a live and let live atmosphere, though.
Schools are reasonably good for Florida, relatively little crime. Few interesting stores or restaurants, but lots of talk of "living in paradise"
and "Florida's cultural capital." For the risk-averse who just want to shielded from anything challenging. Yet, on the every flip side, a very easy place to live your daily life.
Very poor air service, even to Miami. Live here if you love layovers at airports changing planes.
