Winter Fun in Florida

My parents moved to Florida a few months ago and I'm going to visit them for a week at the end of the month. What are your favorite things to do/see/eat in the Sarasota area? [more inside]

Sarasota downtown or "nice walks" lodging with kitchen-type facilities?

Sarasota Where-To-Stay: We want to stay in Sarasota, Florida, USA, Dec. 27-30 to visit with my dude's parents. Can anybody recommend a nice place to stay with kitchenette-type facilities (i.e., at least refrigerator/microwave - or maybe a friendly BNB) with _somewhere_ nice to walk, i.e., not located on a high-traffic road with nothing nearby but uninteresting industrial stuff, nail salons, or chain stores? I'm working with a travel agent, and have looked around a bit myself, so this is a long shot. [more inside]

Is there life for an active couple in their late 50's in Sarasota Fl?

We are looking to live near the water and have tried Miami and LA and are now on the shoreline of Ct. The only problem is; we can't afford to buy a house here and the winter is a bit of a deal breaker. Thinking of moving to the West coast of Florida for the water and the warmth and would love to hear anyone's experience of this area. We have thought of Sarasota and would be open to other cities or large towns. We are both active, still working, (self employed) very liberal and interested in great food and a community of interesting people. We couldn't be somewhere where everyone is retired. Any thoughts?

Things to do and consume around Sarasota and Bradenton

I'll be in the Sarasota/Bradenton, FL area this weekend for 3-4 days and was looking for suggestions on things to do. I was last there about 5 or 6 years ago so I've hit some of the highlights already (Ringling Museum, the Dali Museum and Busch Gardens). Any other suggestions would be great. [more inside]
