    I am think of relocating to Florida and was wondering if any of you are in the Sarasota area and could let me know what its like down there before my wife and I visit there. I have heard nice things about the area and homes aren't too pricey.
    Thanks.

    drink in my hand, toes in the sand. heading out to the beach right now to start the weekend. Gonna be about 70 out there today. Sarasota is a little expensive, I live in the next town up where it is a little cheaper. We have many fine bars down here. Food is good, fruit is good. Anything you need to know just ask away Eddymon. One more thing............NO STATE INCOME TAX [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Hell man, be happy to show you around. Probably the same down here as it is up there. The closer you get to the ocean, the more $$$ you pay. Tons of blue hairs down here, if you don't mind that then you will be able to survive. It ain't bad at all. BUCS are here, and if you consider the "Ning" a pro hockey team. Well they are only 45 min. away. Freak thing is you can't get lost down here. All of the streets go east to west. The avenues go north to south. You can go from the Gulf coast to the Atlantic with one tank of gas and if you don't get caught up in gator land you'll be alright.

    I haven't been down that way in awhile, but I always did find it to be a nice area. Of course, a Boston boy like you should look into Ft. Myers - the winter home of the Red Sox! But at least on the west coast, whereever you land, you can shoot up to St. Petersburg to catch the Sox when they face the Rays (please, they could use the extra fans)!

    Glad it is down there - here in Orlando I'm experiencing the weather I expected to have last week in Portland - rainy and cold!
