Vacationing in Bradenton Beach, Florida
Bradenton Beach, Florida is a quiet and lovely city on the Gulf of Mexico. It is located on the south end of Anna Maria Island. Many vacationers visiting the west coast of Florida normally miss this town and choose either Siesta Key in Sarasota or the St. Petersburg beach areas.
You will not find towering hotels and streets full of tourists. Most of the reasonably priced rentals are converted vacation homes, condominiums and cottages, many with full kitchens.
The beach is just steps away and it is a great place to relax and unwind. It has convenient free parking all along Gulf Drive South where you can park from 6 am to midnight. On most days you will be able to find available parking without much difficulty. Depending on the time of year you will also find protected nesting sea turtles dotting the landscape.
If you enjoy cooking fresh fish and seafood don’t forget to check out Cortez Bait And Seafood, Inc. at 4528 119th St W, Bradenton, FL located in the Cortez Historic Fishing Village. Purchase the catch of the day and prepare it in the convenience of your vacation rental.
Do you rather eat out in restaurants? You will find a handful of restaurants, most just walking distance from the beach. After a hot day at the beach the kids young and old will enjoy delicious home made ice cream at Joe’s Eat’s and Sweets.
If you decide to visit we hope you have a wonderful stay!
