A very quite town with not much in it, but it is near so many interesting places. You're about 15 minutes from Siesta Key #1 beach in America, and another 15 minutes from the beaches in Venice which are great to watch the sunset at. As well as the beach we have a state park, and historical museum in our town that make great day trips. Running through the town is the legacy trail, which can be taken to any part of Sarasota County North or South.

Osprey is a hidden gem situated between Sarasota and Venice. Really a laid back environment but so close to everything. I discovered this place a couple of years ago by accident looking for a place to move to from New York. Love the sunsets and the proximity to the beaches. Really a relaxed environment.
I love this town! The distance is perfect because it is directly in between Venice and Sarasota. With the best beaches every which way.
