Ideally situated between Sarasota and Fort Myers, North Port is one of Southwest Florida’s up-and-coming communities where more than 55,000 residents call it home. While Florida has been known to be a retirement State, North Port boasts a median age of just 38, making it one of the youngest locations in the region.
North Port encompasses over a 100 square miles of serene, tropical surroundings with oak and pine canopies, natural springs and more than 80 miles of freshwater canals throughout. The Myakkahatchee Creek and the Myakka River both offer boating, fishing, canoeing and kayaking opportunities for the adventurous outdoor lovers.
With North Port being within the Sarasota County lines, you will have access to some of the most naturally beautiful attributes this gulf coast area has to offer year round. Dozens of pristine, white sandy beaches are a short distance away, along with dozens of parks and preserves. The Myakka State Forest is a mecca for those who thrive in the outdoors with its 19 miles of trails, kayak/canoe dock, fishing areas and camping sites.
When it comes to education, this city has it covered too. More than 10,000 school aged children live within North Port neighborhoods, where they attend state-of-the-art schools, including six elementary schools, two middle schools and a high school, all within the Sarasota County School District. North Port also offers many higher education options including the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee instructional site located at the corner of Pan American Boulevard and U.S. 41. Just outside of North Port is the State College of Florida, Keiser University, Ringling School of Art & Design, Eckert College, New College of Florida and more.
With nearly 28,000 homes, the City of North Port offers a wide range of residential options, many of which are within newer developments. These include Bobcat Trail, Herons Creek, Sable Trace and The Woodlands, while North Port Estates is an equestrian-seeking homebuyer’s utopia.
