When people dream about lounging on a beach in perfect weather, they’re dreaming about Sarasota County. It’s a place filled with sunshine and year-long outdoor activities.

Called the Suncoast for a Reason

Florida’s West Coast is perfect for life outdoors. Yes, the summers are warm, but our beaches are beautiful and our winter months are picturesque. With an average 255 days of sunshine a year, you’ll find that your lifestyle spills effortlessly into outdoor spaces, all year long.


It doesn’t get cold here in Sarasota. 72˚F is the average temperature in this part of the country. Perfect for a day out on the boat, the trails or the golf course. And if it ever rains, it’s never for more than an hour or two.

Built for outdoor living

Sarasota County has over 120 parks and trails spread over 3,000 acres. 35 miles of coastline. And restaurants and shopping in picturesque settings.
