Learn more about Laurel /Nokomis

Laurel is a town in Florida with a population of 9,283. Technically speaking, it is the northern part of Nokomis bordering on Oscar Scherer Park. Nokomis, which was mentioned the first time in 1917, is the older part of the neighborhood and includes the upscale barrier island of Casey Key. 

Laurel Park is a subdivision in downtown Sarasota, that has nothing to do with this Laurel. Names are sometimes a little confusing. 

A Mix of different residental areas

Living in Laurel offers residents a suburban rural mix feel; most residents own their homes, renters are the minority. Real Laurel is a mixture of older, smaller homes, single-family residences, and multi-million dollar homes, especially on Casey Key. The price tag for homes on Casey Key can easily exceed the $15 million thresholds. There are no gated communities on the key, and very few on the mainland, compared to oter areas.

Nothing too Fancy

Scattered through Laurel, you can find quite a few restaurants and parks. However, don’t expect anything too fancy like in Sarasota. Because many retirees live in Laurel, the choice of restaurants is a little more conservative. Older retirees tend to stick with the food they know, and Fugo is most likely not one of them.
