While Sarasota is one of the premier Florida cities to visit, it's been an exceptional place to live for years, and that still rings true today. Named one of the best places to live in the United States, Sarasota is also one of our country's safest cities, and it has a variety of reasons contributing to a remarkable quality of life in your retirement years.
The Weather is Always Cheerful in Sarasota
With relatively mild weather, Sarasota draws people year-round and especially in the winter. The temperature rarely drops below 50 degrees during the winter months and best of all, there is no snow to shovel!
The Sunshine State has long been a favorite for retirees because of its sunny days and cool nights. When the sun does get hot, residents can head for the beach. Rainy days result in activities such as visiting The Ringling Museums.
