Manatee County

Just south of Tampa/St. Petersburg, you’ll find Florida as it was meant to be: unplugged, unspoiled and unbelievable. The Bradenton area (Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key) offers you a chance to experience miles of sugar white sand island beaches, historic downtowns and some of the best nature and dining in the state. Sink your toes into the sand, kayak through mangrove tunnels in the calm Gulf waters, visit the worlds oldest living manatee, zip line through the trees, speed through one of Florida’s best kart tracks, or catch major-league sports like spring training. The Bradenton area even offers you the opportunity to catch wildlife up close at our exquisite preserves and follow your milk from cow to bottle at the areas working dairy. Don’t forget to grab some fresh squeezed orange juice and enjoy a tasty grouper sandwich at many of the areas oceanfront dining options. Coastal towns and old, authentic Florida awaits.
