anna maria island
Anna Maria Island FloridaIn its early years, the only way to get to Anna Maria Island, on Florida's Gulf coast, was by boat. It wasn't until 1921 that the three towns on the island, Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria, were connected to the mainland. Now, although this seven-and-a-half-mile island is accessible via three different bridges, it is natural once over those bridges to feel you've gone back in time. The friendly, easy-going residents and readily apparent Old Florida heritage of the island are reminiscent of a bygone era. This laid-back culture is both a natural by-product of the serene tropical environment as well as a deliberate effort by the local governments to preserve the natural and cultural richness of the island. Because strict zoning laws prohibit high-rise development, the entire island has just two structures with more than three stories.

 Surrounded completely by beaches, the three towns are part of an island-wide program to replenish and protect the coastline from erosion. The beaches provide spectacular vistas and are home to exotic wildlife that beguile vacationers and residents alike.

Bradenton FloridaBradenton is one of central west Florida's oldest cities. Increasingly cosmopolitan in character, the city retains its small-town charm. A number of new residential sections compliment older established neighbourhoods in both urban and suburban settings. Bradenton and nearby Palmetto's easily accessible water makes boating and fishing popular pastimes. The county's boating public is served by 30 marinas and eight boat ramps. Among the public fishing piers are the Anna Maria City Pier at Pine Avenue; the Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier at Bridge Street; Manatee Beach Fishing Pier on Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach; and the Rod 'n' Reel Pier on Bay Boulevard in Anna Maria.

The Bradenton area represents natural Florida because it has not suffered many of the negative effects of Florida's booming growth. The best example of the area's unspoiled nature is the broad sweeps of white sand beaches unmarred by high rise condominiums or hotels. The beaches feature the Gulf of Mexico's emerald waters bordered by tall, shady Australian Pines. Serene natural beauty and breathtaking Gulf views give Bradenton and the Gulf Islands a kick back and relax style all their own - the perfect setting for a rejuvenating, carefree vacation.
