The weather is always warm, with a chance of showers. The winters are very mild and the beach is always here. I love living in Sarasota and I couldn't imagine it any other way. I know that leaving for school, leaving Sarasota and my family is going to incredibly tough. I love living minutes from one of the World's most beautiful beaches, Siesta Key. Our UTC shopping city is just breath taking. Every store known to man will be within its regions, and the restaurants, wow I can't even begin. The other beautiful cities within Sarasota county are building and catching up to our larger towns. If I had to be reborn somewhere, it would be right here in Sarasota. We have Nationally recognized hospitals and schools. The wealth in this city is outrageous. Opportunities are everywhere in this town.

The crime rate in Sarasota is very minimal. Lifestyles are very high end with many gated communities. Police are quick to response and security is on high alert. The police are always patrolling and seem to stay on top of things here. I feel the police force is fabulous in Sarasota. Our community is very backing to the officers here and we are constantly contributing to the foundations they have set up. Of course, as with any city know city is perfect. Our murders rate is very low, drug addiction is like an small town and the robberies are sparing.
Although my family and I began seeing more drug issues in my neighborhood (Sarasota Springs) within the last few years of us living there, it was still a wonderful experience. After the first year of living there I met someone who turned out to be my best friend, and she definitely had a huge impact on my life. There where many other kids there my age, so there was always someone to hang out with. To be honest, sadly, I see the drug issues getting worse and worse for this Sarasota Springs. I think my family and I moved out at the right time because of how quickly the drug issues are spreading. All in all, Sarasota Springs let me grow up with fun and good friends around me.
