Choosy Parisian Chooses Sarasota
A recent article in the Wall Street Journal headlines Sarasota as “A Florida Beach Vacation with Snob Appeal,” stating that “with its highbrow culture and low-key seaside charms, Sarasota persuades a choosy Parisian to make it his home away from home.”
Below are selected quotes from the article by Parisian and part-time Sarasotan Alexander Lobrano. Click here to read the full article.
“I was originally tipped off to Sarasota by a novelist friend who once lived on Siesta Key, home to a beach often rated as the best in the U.S. Thanks to her, I’ve been visiting the area on an off for 20 years.”
“It’s an already great community that’s starting to evolve in really interesting ways. It could even become similar to Cambridge, Mass., but with fabulous beaches, better weather and palm trees.”
“Baby boomers relocating from big cities in the Northeast and Middle West and North American and European vacationers want more out of a winter holiday than just a good beach.”
“I know what I’m talking about, because I’ve recently become one of the boomers who’ve chosen to become part of Sarasota’s new cityscape.”
“Just don’t tell anyone else about Sarasota. Let’s keep it our little secret.”
