There is a large variety of local businesses, from restaurants to boutiques to architectural salvages. Since tourism is a large part of Sarasota's economy, things can be a little pricy but you can avoid this if you know where to go (Big E's).

There very nice houses, and they are near schools.
Living in Florida is like being on vacation all year long.
