Bradenton is an incredibly dynamic area of Florida that lies on the Manatee River. It is just southeast of St. Petersburg, across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. This city is also associated with the areas of Palmetto, Ellenton, and the gorgeous Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key. Its beaches and waterfronts are breathtaking, and the perfect place to call home. Residents can visit the Bishop Planetarium, Manatee Aquarium, South Florida Museum, or the incredible Manatee Riverwalk. Head just a few minutes east to one of the last remaining fishing towns on Florida’s west coast, Cortez, and eat some of the freshest, most delicious seafood you’ll ever taste! Bradenton is a great location for anyone wanting to live centralized between St. Pete, Sarasota, and Tampa.
