New to Sarasota + Pages

Are you new in town and excited about the new places, people, and experiences that await you? Come with us to explore and learn what's hot, what's not, what's new, what's tried and true. Do something different, find your faves, and make new friends and local contacts!

No dues to pay, but you MUST bring:
1) your sense of adventure, 2) a friendly, positive, and respectful demeanor, and 3) willingness to meet new people and test new ground!

Our "New to Sarasota+" meetup group is open to new residents of Sarasota and surrounding towns no matter whether you've lived here for just a few months or have lived in the area for just a few years. Adult singles (unmarried, widowed, divorced) and couples are welcome to become members and join other new residents for social gatherings in and around our new hometown. Our group also has some members who have lived in the area for many years, known as our Sarasota "Ambassadors", who bring local knowledge and ideas for group events that will help newcomers experience the fun times, culture, and natural beauty that our area has to offer. Not only will we meet up at the popular places and events, but we will also explore those interesting local venues enjoyed by Sarasota insiders!

Welcome to your new hometown!
