Sarasota is a vibrant community, with younger families moving in and expanding

with its award-winning beach, Siesta Key Beach, and nearby Longboat Key, Lido
Key, and Casey Key. St. Petersburg, Tampa, and Clearwater are all close by.
Sarasota is a very special

Ringling Museum, the Cad’zan, Opera, Florida Studio Theater, Van Wezel for
concerts, and well-known performers. There is even the Sarasota Sailor Circus,
and much more! Everything is right in downtown Sarasota and close to the
airports. Sarasota Airport
is only about 10-15 minutes away, and easy to get to. The Tampa airport is only
about an hour away.

and The Lightning.

beautiful city, like Sarasota,” said Jeff LaBelle.
