Sarasota came in first place, followed by Fort MyersPort St. Lucie, and Naples, sweeping the top four spots. Sarasota and Fort Myers dominated the list last year as well, just swapping first and second places in the latest survey.

Sarasota’s beaches, parks, cultural attractions, shops, and restaurants make it popular with visitors as well as residents. The area attracted circus impresario John Ringling in the early 1900’s, and in 1924 he began building an elegant seaside winter residence, Ca’ d’Zan, which he modeled after the Doges Palace in Venice.
