"The Friendly City" of Bradenton overlooks fresh water lakes, rivers and the Gulf of Mexico and is considered to be the jewel of Florida’s southwest inter-coastal highway.  

A simple life rules in Bradenton by having each day spent basking on white sandy beaches, swimming in clear seas or searching for colorful shells.  

Occasionally drag the body away from the sand and feast on some of the best and fresh seafood such as grouper, red snapper and mullet on the island.

A variety of restaurants on the island represent every type of food and budget it is here that seafood rules. Memories can be made from the swank restaurants illuminated by candlelight along the water or the rustic beach side pubs serving blue crabs with a beer.
