Sarasota

FI and I are going there this weekend to check out the area, look at where we would want to live if we moved there :(
Has anyone been there/lived there to give me some insight? I'm scared it is going to be boring!!

    Its VERY slow there. Not very active since 70% of the population is over 55.

    I love it over there.  It's slower but there are things to do.  I have family in North Port and Venice (not far from Sarasota).  Bradenton is close and there are things to do there. You're also going to be about an hour away from Tampa. 

    I love everything about being over there. Different strokes I suppose.  I don't care for going out as much anymore so missing the "night life" wouldn't bother me. And I'd much rather raise childeren over there then here.  Don't be sad, embrace it.  You may like it more then you think.

    ook I do like a slower pace, It is a little too crazy for me here, esp in South Beach. Too many tourists. I def want to be someplace slower to raise kids. I also like that it is not far from here. His parents will also be only 45 minutes away which is good too because his dad is older and we will be able to see them more than once a year. I am a little excited to start something new. We are also looking at Bradenton.
    Maybe I can start a yoga on the beach for the retired! lol

    My fam lives in Bradenton and they have great schools there so maybe that is a better option than living in Sarasota, since it is close? Good luck, you never know...maybe it will be a great move!

    I heard the beaches around there are gorgeous.. im dying to move upstate! I too enjoy the slower life style... And like they said your near Tampa so if you ever need a night life you can always drive right over :)
