Once again, Sarasota has been named one of the BEST places to live in the entire U.S. This year's U.S. News and World Report ranks Sarasota fifth on the national list of best places to live, and number 1 within the state of Florida. Our beautiful city moved up four places from last year's top ten rank.
While this honor isn't a big surprise since Sarasota's beautiful environment and appealing lifestyle have gotten U.S. News and World Report's attention before, we're thrilled by the rise in our ranking and the attention that our community is receiving. Sarasota's popularity for new residents continues to grow for many reasons, including our high quality schools, cultural amenities, and great housing market.
