Sarasota, the Gem of Florida’s Gulf Coast, is located about fifty miles South of Tampa and is a year round cultural and outdoor destination for 100’s of thousands of visitors annually.

Many vacationers get “sand in their shoes”, which is a local term for the need to find a way to relocate or at least retire here.

Sarasota is home to a Symphony Orchestra, Ballet, Opera, many fine live theaters and lots of  golf courses. The “social season” runs January through May, with many black tie charitable fund raising events occurring in that period. That is also the time period that people escape the northern winter for a more welcoming climate.

Siesta Beach, which has sand the consistency of sugar, was voted the number one beach in THE WORLD in 2011. Sarasota also boasts the world renowned Ringling School of Art and Design and the Ringling Fine Art Museum.

Vacation rentals are abundant here, whether you prefer Carlton-Ritz style accommodations, or a laid back motel on the beach, Sarasota will fulfil your tropical holiday dreams.

Sarasota Immigrant Turns Original Idea into New Business

Sarasota immigrant Mari-Anne Saunders (on right) preparing the Legacy Trail General Store for opening

Dickson Richard is a Sarasota immigrant with a fun and useful business proposal; opening the only retail store on the length of the Legacy Trail.  Called the Legacy Trail General Store it will be located at 595 Church St, Nokomis.  The property backs up to the Legacy Trail near its midpoint, not far from downtown Venice.  It will offer nutritious snacks and beverages, useful paraphernalia for bikers and runners, and a nice quiet seating area to relax.

Reporters from local TV channels, radio stations, and newspapers have already been raving about the fledgling business.   The General Store is a member of Friends of the Legacy Trail,  Beautification of Venice, and has applied to be on the bicycle advisory board for Sarasota County.

25,000 people use the Legacy Trail every month during season; 13,000 during of-season.  With numbers like these we believe that the Legacy Trail General Store stands poised for great success.
