We live just outside of Toronto, Canada and are looking ahead to retirement in the coming years. We are very active and adhere to the 'work hard, play hard' philosophy. I work in the TV industry while my husband is self-employed, which offers him the flexibility to enjoy teaching skiing in the winter and tennis year-round.
We had considered buying in Florida for a number of years and had looked at various areas. Good friends had been visiting Sarasota for many years and bought in The Meadows. Once we visited, we 'got it' and realized that this was the place to be! The area has so much to offer and we look forward to spending our 'twilight' years discovering it all!
There's something for everyone...from the arts, great restaurants, fabulous beaches, sporting activities...all within a 15-20 minute radius of where we are. ...and for those Snowbirds (like us), we love picking out one of our favorite bottles of wine at a fraction of what we pay in Canada!
The Meadows is conveniently located west of I 75 and within a 7 minute drive to major shopping centers , fine dining, and all amenities.
Siesta beach ( rated #1 beach in Florida ) is a short 15 minute drive.
