I have lived in Nokomis all my life i am 17 years old and it is a nice, safe, beach town that is very nice to grow up in. Nokomis really is a tiny paradise with a white sand beach being between 5 and 10 minutes away, depending on where in Nokomis you live, and the beach is never crowded. I went to school at Laurel Nokomis for 3 years and was in the gifted program and had a great time. The teachers were kind and I made lasting friendships. Great place for a kid to grow up and great place for retirees since there are a lot of them here. My favorite thing to do is walk the beach at sunset. The older crowd often goes to the Paradise Grill in Nokomis, I see them there a lot, dancing and having the time of their lives. there's always a crowd dancing to oldies, and new music.

Nokomis is a small yet busy beach town that borders Venice, Florida. I love my town except for the fact that the median age is about 63. Aside from my family, no other kids or teens live in my neighborhood. The town itself is too populated when northerners come down in the winter, so traffic can be stressful. Overall I love the beaches near me but wish there were more people my age near me.
Nokomis is home to a mixed group of middle class families. Although there is not as much community involvement, there are lots of restaurants on the main road that everyone can enjoy. There area is slightly more affordable than othere areas in Sarasota County and its not too far away from the beach.
