This year's ranking list Sarasota as #5, moving up four spots from our position in last year's top ten. The incredible quality of Sarasota's lifestyle, along with our relative affordability, and world-class cultural offerings are some of the drivers for Sarasota's desirability. Our population continues to grow with residents from every stage of life, from young professionals to families seeking high quality school options, and retirees to. New residents are adding to both our community's energy and the tax base that supports public projects and infrastructure, meaning that we'll continue to see improvements that add appeal throughout Sarasota.
In addition to being one of the Best Places to Live, Sarasota was ranked one of the top two fastest growing cities in America and also recognized as a great place for retirement and for safety.
