Sarasota is a southern Gulf Coast paradise that boasts some of the best beaches in the world, making it an easy relocation spot for many residents. The city lies between the larger cities of Tampa and Fort Myers, yet still maintains a small-town atmosphere and a sunny, warm climate that citizens here enjoy. It's known as a popular retirement location, but many families as well as young residents are making the move to Sarasota.

A 2012 U.S. Census estimate indicated that Sarasota is home to more than 52,800 residents. According to City-Data, the median household income in the city rose by more than $6,000 from 2000 to 2011, but despite Sarasota's financial growth, the cost of living rate remains more than 4 percent below the U.S. average, making it a very affordable place to live.

Activities and attractions in Sarasota:

Sarasota is known all over the world for its near-perfect oceanfront vistas, so the beaches are understandably the main attraction. There are three main places to find seaside fun in Sarasota: Longboat Key, Lido Key and Siesta Key. The biggest and most popular by far is the Siesta Public Beach in Siesta Key. But if you want a quiet spot away from the vacationers, North Lido Beach on Lido Key is deal.

Besides the beaches, Sarasota has a very active arts community that gets involved in a variety of venues and theaters, including the Florida West Coast Symphony, Art Center Sarasota, the John and Mable Ringling Museum, the Sarasota Ballet and the Banyan Theater Company.

If you're a fan of the fairways, it doesn't get much better than living in Sarasota. There are 32 courses in the Sarasota, including the Bobby Jones Golf Course, which is considered the "Cradle of Golf."

Moving to Sarasota

Sarasota is a coastal city, which can be a bit daunting for those who aren't familiar with an oceanside layout. However, Interstate 75 runs right along the city's perimeter, giving new residents easy access during a relocation. U.S. Highway 41 zips right alongside the coastal side of Sarasota as well, if your new home is lucky enough to be located near the beach. With Allied Van Lines, an agent can set you up with plenty of services with a Sarasota moving company, from stretch wrap to self-pack material sales.
