There has never been a better time to plan your holiday to the Bradenton Area on Florida's West Coast. Miles of sugar, white-sand beaches and unspoiled views in every direction. Enjoy fresh, locally caught seafood, inspired cuisine, and world-class entertainment and arts. Take in the sights and sounds of nature with the abundant wildlife and preserves. Paddle through mangrove tunnels or bottle feed a baby calf at a working dairy farm. The only thing missing from this authentic, Florida destination is you.
With so much sunshine, beautiful surroundings, history and culture, there's always something to celebrate around the Bradenton Area.
