      Amelia Island Jan 13, 2015 at 7:12 AM

      My parents (80 & 76) are planning to drive from Hartford to Amelia Island later this month. I don't think they should be driving this distance at their ages and my Mom is absolutely terrified. They are renting a condo for two months so they would need to take periodic trips to local grocery store to stock shelves. I was thinking I'd buy them airline tickets in lieu of their plan. What transportation services are available down there? Renting a car for two months could be prohibitively expensive. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

      We'll be driving from Orlando to Naples and want to spend the day exposing 'milk boatil' white Scottish hides to some rays. If we do all the way to Naples the day will be mostly done, so want to break the journey 2 hours or so drive from Orlando.

      Ritz Carlton Sarasota etc etc

      by mickey.p Online Now Sep 23, 2010 at 5:08 PM

      Hi,

      I am a UK Travel Agent and I have been given some great rates for the Ritz Carlton in December - too good to pass up!

      I am in Florida for a month however and we are therefore on a bit of a budget (not as in back packing scrooge type budget) so we are keen not to over spend in Sarasota.

      I've stayed at the Ritz Carlton West Palm Beach and found the food and drinks were very expensive. So I presume the Sarasota property will be the same!

      Can anyone tell me if there's the normal "Florida" Restaurants close to the Ritz Carlton? Just so we have options of places to eat for less? or is it in an area with just up market eateries?

      Usually I'd just grin and bare the hotel prices but as we are away for 4 weeks we really need to be a bit more watchful on the pennies!

    • Relocation question

      by DUKE3100 Online Now May 23, 2006 at 6:00 PM

      I know this is a travel forum but I have been considering relocating to Sarasota on and off for some time. I can't find any other forum with people who can tell me about their area. I am a single 28 year old male with a business degree and sales/customerservice/foodservice experience. I want to move to an area that has plenty of jobs and also has a lot of females in the age range of 21-35. Sarasota seems to be up and coming but my main concern is that there is no nightlife and places to get crazy and meet women. I like dance clubs and hip hop/techno. I don't need Miami night life but It would help to know that it is easy to get a job...that the people are easy to get to know and in my age group and that there is enough nightlife to have a lot of fun on a friday or saturday night. The area use to have the reputation of having no night life and not being for single people. Is this still true or is Sarasota a good place for a single 28 year old? I am looking for a place in Flordia that is by the beach but is not out of control like Daytona or Miami...where I can have the best of both worlds....fun when I want it and some peace when I want it too.

      1) Would like to find a really awesome church, great and accurate

      2) Anyone know a great guitar teacher hopefully with some schooling
      from a place like Berkeley, more rock/alternative style.
      2) Does anyone know a good commercial real estate person, will be
      relocating my business and need a cool spot.
      3) How is the jet skiing, any places to launch and are the beaches
      motorized.
      4) Best neighborhoods around?

      I really appreciate any of you giving your opinion and info. I hope to
      meet some really cool people when we move as things in Fort Lauderdale
      have not click for me. Can't wait to move out of this town and get
      back on the west coast of Florida.
