Take one sweeping look of our crystalline emerald-gulf waters, abundant sunshine, lush nature parks, and the Bradenton Riverwalk, and you'll never want to be indoors again. There are so many ways to enjoy the great outdoors--including hiking, fishing, shopping, or just soaking up the sun. The Bradenton Area is your personal playground to enjoy.

There’s more to the great outdoors of the Bradenton Area than beaches with our natural wildlife and preserves.
When you need a break from the land, rent a kayak, canoe or powerboat, go fishing, parasailing, windsurfing, try horse surfing or just dive in. We have water activities for every age!
