Venice, Sarasota – The New Number One

Venice is a beautiful city in the county of Sarasota in Florida, USA. It has a significant selection of mainland as well as an island which is right off the coasts. It is a relatively small city with about 20,000 people in it which makes it the perfect place for retiring people to consider purchasing a real estate. The place is quiet, calm and enjoyable while having all the necessary establishments nearby.

Sarasota County – Growing Interest

For the first time since 2007, the most popular place to retire is no longer Asheville, NC. For almost an entire decade this was the city which was overly preferred by people for their retirement real estate. However, in 2016, the tides seem to have shifted as this particular honor goes to the city of Sarasota. Even though the contest was rather close, the top spot was conveniently taken by this West Coast Florida’s city.

Uprising of Sarasota Makes Venice Desirable

As we already mentioned above, Venice is already a very desirable city to retire in because of the comfort that it brings. However, as Sarasota is rising in popularity, so is Venice. As a matter of fact, people already see Sarasota as the second most influential cultural hub in the state of Florida right after the characteristic city of Miami. However, retirement in Miami is widely inappropriate as the city is overly known for the variety of different entertainment opportunities that it offers and it has hence become a particularly desirable tourist destination.

As far as the city of Venice goes, it’s important to note that it is also serviced by the U.S. Highway 41 which means that transportation to other major cities nearby is rather seamless. The city has its own newspaper called the Venice Gondolier Sun, and it is published twice every single week with a circulation of about 13,500 copies. It has a Theatre, and it’s the largest theater in the United State as per capital community. It has a huge operating budget of approximately $3 million. The Venice Symphony is known for holding quite a lot of performances at the locale. It goes without saying that there is no shortage of different things to do in Venice. Fom the Park Historic District to the Eagle Point Historic District, the city is dripping with historic sites and interesting things to do.
