I will be working in Sarasota, but would rather live in St. Pete. How far is the drive to Sarasota?

The drive from Sarasota to St. Pete is a similar time frame to the drive from St. Petersburg to Tampa. It is common for people to commute between these areas, for work, school, and pleasure. The Sunshine Skyway bridge is the gateway between Sarasota and St. Petersburg. This is a toll road, so if you are working across the bridge, we would recommend getting a SunPass. This device will allow you to cross the bridge and pay electronically, rather than stopping to pay the toll.
