    There is no need to stay in just one place when you travel to the Bradenton area. That is because with cites like Tampa, St. Petersburg, Lakeland, and Sarasota close-by, there’s always a reason to see more and do more (as long as you promise to come back). From the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota to Walt Disney World in Orlando, there’s a world to see housed in our state. And we’re pretty proud of that.
