in both urban and suburban settings. Bradenton offers a vast array of arts, culture

Longboat Key. New master planned development continues to boom in East Manatee. Lakewood

Sarasota & Her Islands
Sarasota may be the ultimate beach town, with its sun-kissed location on the Gulf
of Mexico, more than 200 sunny days a year and an average year-round temperature
of 71°F. Yet there are plenty of other reasons why we named it the best small city.
There are 35 miles of pristine white sand beaches, world class dining, shopping and
arts, entertainment and culture. Sarasota offers a mix of casual comfort and sophisticated
savvy. Continual urban renewal and renovations, take great care in preserving historic
and quaint communities for generations to come. This will ensure that sarasota will
remain one of the top places to live in the United States.
Sarasota's barrier islands, each with a distinctive flavor, combine the ultimate
in island leisure and living. Longboat Key features luxury high-rise condominiums
that line Gulf of Mexico Drive to its sprawling bay side estates. Longboat Key offers
residents a secure and private lifestyle. You will marvel at its impeccably manicured
fairways and lawns, upscale shopping areas and tropical opulence. Lido Key and the
world famous St. Armand's Circle offers excellent opportunities to indulge oneself
in sheer paradise. Further south, Siesta Key is known as one of the best beaches
in the world and has a tropical, relaxed "artsy" feel. Casey Key is predominantly
residential with sprawling luxury estates.
