I love the area that I live in. There are multiple grocery stores, clothing stores, restaurants, car repair shops, and even a laundromat less than 5 minutes away. Theres a huge sports authority store about 8 minutes away on cattlemen and bee ridge and an LA Fitness that I am a member of across the street. There is a plaza with about 4 restaurants, a gas station (with dunking donuts attached) and Doctor's Hospital right off the highway about 10 minutes from my house. There are a quite a few mom and pop shops but also many big companies and I definitely have everything I need in this area.

Honestly, people assume that in Florida we have to worry about tropical storms a lot, but here in Sarasota I can count on one hand the number of serious tropical storms I have encountered in my 18 years. The weather here is beautiful and sunny and it's almost always a beach day. Essential wardrobe items would include shorts, tank tops, sandals, sun hats, and bathing suits.
There are many restaurants in the area where any one could find a good job. They are always busy here. Theres also many grocery stores and retail stores. However, even if you wish to become a nurse, as I do, there's a hospital 10 minutes away. Most of the people in my neighborhood are retired though and live off of investments.
