Review of Sarasota, Florida


Sarasota is Paradise!
Star Rating - 8/21/2019
Sarasota is paradise! We live in downtown Sarasota and walk almost everywhere. Within a 20 minute walking distance we access numerous delicious restaurants, 10 live performance theaters (Florida Studio Theater has 5 separate venues) and two movie theaters. Many of the restaurants have live music. The parks on Sarasota Bay provide beautiful opportunities to relax, exercise, walk the dog, paint, and more. Sarasota's commitment to the arts results in a year round schedule of festivals with artists from around the world expanding our horizons. I strongly recommend Sarasota for active people.
