IS Siesta Keys Fl Safe  (5 Answers)

I am going to be taking a trip to Siesta Keys and I have very bad anxiety! I have read alot of good things about this area but one women said it was very sketchy and she did not feel safe on the main street and at night walking around? Is this indeed a unsafe area? Is there any where we should stay away from or is there alot of crime. I was very surprised when I read this. I really need some honest replies due to my anxiety. Thank you so much!!!

Best beach in Sarasota or South of Sarasota  (3 Answers)

Can anyone recommend a beach in Sarasota or down the I-75 from Sarasota to Naples, Fl ?
We'll be driving from Orlando to Naples and want to spend the day exposing 'milk boatil' white Scottish hides to some rays. If we do all the way to Naples the day will be mostly done, so want to break the journey 2 hours or so drive from Orlando.
Locations for handy for getting back on the I-75 with adjacent (metered) parking most welcome... Thanks for any suggestions
Paul

Ritz Carlton Sarasota etc etc  (6 Answers)

Hi,

I am a UK Travel Agent and I have been given some great rates for the Ritz Carlton in December - too good to pass up!

I am in Florida for a month however and we are therefore on a bit of a budget (not as in back packing scrooge type budget) so we are keen not to over spend in Sarasota.

I've stayed at the Ritz Carlton West Palm Beach and found the food and drinks were very expensive. So I presume the Sarasota property will be the same!

Can anyone tell me if there's the normal "Florida" Restaurants close to the Ritz Carlton? Just so we have options of places to eat for less? or is it in an area with just up market eateries?

Usually I'd just grin and bare the hotel prices but as we are away for 4 weeks we really need to be a bit more watchful on the pennies!

Relocation question  (2 Answers)

I know this is a travel forum but I have been considering relocating to Sarasota on and off for some time. I can't find any other forum with people who can tell me about their area. I am a single 28 year old male with a business degree and sales/customerservice/foodservice experience. I want to move to an area that has plenty of jobs and also has a lot of females in the age range of 21-35. Sarasota seems to be up and coming but my main concern is that there is no nightlife and places to get crazy and meet women. I like dance clubs and hip hop/techno. I don't need Miami night life but It would help to know that it is easy to get a job...that the people are easy to get to know and in my age group and that there is enough nightlife to have a lot of fun on a friday or saturday night. The area use to have the reputation of having no night life and not being for single people. Is this still true or is Sarasota a good place for a single 28 year old? I am looking for a place in Flordia that is by the beach but is not out of control like Daytona or Miami...where I can have the best of both worlds....fun when I want it and some peace when I want it too.

Public transportation in Sarasota

I am going to Sarasota for a week with my child in May. I cannot decide if I should rent a car or use public transportation. We are staying at Hyatt Hotel (1000 Bulv. of the Arts). Are there direct bus lines going to beaches (Siesta, Lido, Fort Myers)? I am also thinking about taking my child to Marie Salby Botanical Gardens, aquarium, Myakka State Park and some other attractions. I am worried that if I rent a car I will have problems to find parking. Also I don't want to go to notorious 41 highway :(

cool accomodations?  (1 Answer)

We're going to be in Sarasota for a few days on business in December. I'd like to find a cool place to stay. We are twenty-somethings and would prefer a place that is different, more modern than most of the places I saw on line. In Sarasota or on Siesta Key would be ideal. Somewhere near the beach with spa treatment for my wife. (I want to take care of her since I'm dragging her along.) Price is not really a concern.
Thank you for any input.

Relocating To Sarasota  (2 Answers)

Hi, My wife and I will be relocating to Sarasota within the next year
and wanted to find out a few things from anyone who lives or has lived
in Sarasota.

1) Would like to find a really awesome church, great and accurate
teaching and youthful worship.
2) Anyone know a great guitar teacher hopefully with some schooling
from a place like Berkeley, more rock/alternative style.
2) Does anyone know a good commercial real estate person, will be
relocating my business and need a cool spot.
3) How is the jet skiing, any places to launch and are the beaches
motorized.
4) Best neighborhoods around?

I really appreciate any of you giving your opinion and info. I hope to
meet some really cool people when we move as things in Fort Lauderdale
have not click for me. Can't wait to move out of this town and get
back on the west coast of Florida.
