Florida’s sunny weather and generally flat landscape have made its cities popular destinations for those who like to travel on foot. With environmental and affordability concerns increasingly on the forefront, finding a home within walking distance to everyday amenities is also a priority for Florida homebuyers.

Redfin wanted to see which Florida neighborhoods are the most walkable, based on data from Walk Score. Not surprisingly, the Rosemary District in Sarasota found its spot on the list. With its charm and culture leading the way, along with its new residential developments like BLVD, the Rosemary District’s walk score competes with more condensed area’s like Miami Beach, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale

Among the several communities set in downtown, the Rosemary District combines all the delightful benefits of urban Sarasota living with a rich and fascinating historical heritage reaching all the way back to 1886.

Today the Rosemary District is a diverse and thriving community, the setting for a variety of locally-owned small businesses – cafés, boutiques, galleries, and art studios – as well as attractive residential properties ranging from charming bungalows to spacious high-rise condos.
