Sarasota Again Named Number 1 Place to Retire

Once again, Sarasota, Florida, topped the list of Best Places to Retire in the U.S., according to U.S. News and World Report’s 2021-2022 data. Florida cities took eight out of the top 10 spots on the most recent annual survey, which evaluates 150 metropolitan areas and ranks them according to criteria that includes health care, housing affordability, air quality, crime rates, taxes, and overall desirability.

Sarasota‘s beaches, parks, cultural attractions, restaurants, and shopping make it a popular vacation destination as well as an ideal retirement community. Golf, boating, fishing, and water sports are favorite activities. Beaches like Lido Key and Siesta Key, the warm, swimmable Gulf of Mexico, fresh seafood, and waterfront dining draw travelers to the area, as does the sophisticated downtown and St. Armands Circle for shopping and restaurants.
