Review of Sarasota Flor,

Star Rating - 7/15/2010
I've lived here most of my life and I love it here. Sure it's hot, muggy and buggy most of the time but that's why they invented air conditioning and screened-in porches and the beaches are just spectacular. There are excellent youth programs including youth opera, sailing and Sailor Circus and the arts community is a large part of the Sarasota lifestyle with an abundance of museums and performing arts centers. Just six or seven years ago the downtown area was a snooze but today it is being revitalized with tons of trendy boutiques and clubs, beautiful condos and all my old favorite little restaurants along with several great new ones. Just be prepared to deal with some pretty annoying construction right now but hey, it won't last forever and I think it'll be worth it :)
