We visited Bradenton several times on our way to Anna Maria island.
You can take entire vacation on this island, northernmost in the chain of barrier islands stretching from Tampa Bay to Sarasota. Anna Maria claims 7.5 miles of white send beaches. The island communities (Anna Maria, Holmes Beach & Bradenton Beach) are popular with family vacationers and seniors, offering a variety of public beaches, fishing piers, and inexpensive motels.
