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 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.
I think the Nokomis is a beautiful town. I have lived there most of my life. We have large beautiful beaches. We have complete access to the Gulf of Mexico. We have intercoastal waterways where I kayak. There are many parks. There are many businesses close by. There are hospitals and malls nearby. We have a large sidewalk trail that runs many miles miles where you can ride bikes, rollerblades, and walk or run. There there are some good choices for employment. But Nokomis is so small and that the neighboring towns also offer great choices of employment and housing. We have many different choices of workout establishments. I love Nokomis my favorite thing is to go to the beach and watch the sunset.
