Congratulations, Sarasota is #14 in the US
The U.S. News and World Report studied the most populated cities in the country for this report. They took a look at quality of life, job market, living conditions, best value and a few other topics.
The top 5 spots in the study were Denver, CO, Austin, TX, Fayetteville, AK, Raleigh-Durham, NC and Colorado Springs, CO. Florida actually performed better than any other state with 6 areas in the top 50.
The study applauded Sarasota’s music, fabulous award-winning beaches, and arts. They also liked the easy drive to such places as Tampa and Orlando.
The study was right on the button when it cited Sarasota for ongoing infrastructure and traffic problems as more and more full time residents come to Sarasota. Amenities were also a strong suit for Sarasota in the study.
Yes, the word is out about Sarasota and the surrounding areas of our beautiful Gulf Coast.
