Our Region

From white sand beaches stretching the length of our beautiful region to endless fields of oranges and other great local produce, Manatee and Sarasota Counties offer something for everyones lifestyle; be it a full schedule of shopping and socializing with great friends or just a lazy day listening to the sounds of surf on a beach.  No age group or family member will be left behind when you move to the great region of Southwest Florida.  With a myriad of things to do for everyone in the family no one will ever go a day without planning something great.

Whether you plan on retiring to a Golf community where you can tee off every morning on a different award winning course, or plan on combing through the historic downtown areas of Manatee and Sarasota counties to find a lively social agenda filled with music, art, and all types of entertainment.  Weekends can bring all families together just as easy with a day trip to the world renowned Ringling Art Museum or just a family picnic on the beach, there is no shortage of great things to do.
