Top 5 travel tips in Manatee County

1. Visit Anna Maria Island

Located right on the coast of Manatee County is Anna Maria Island. This stunning barrier island is home to seven miles of pristine, white-sand beaches. It is known for having some of the best beaches in the entire state of Florida. Swim in the tranquil turquoise waters, do a fishing charter, rent kayaks, or go parasailing.

2. Reconnect with nature at Robinson Preserve

Set in northwest Bradenton, this green nature preserve is home to walking trails, bike paths, picnic areas, observatories, and a boat launch. You can bike around the peaceful grounds or kayak in the bay. A great place to spend the afternoon or to go for a sunset picnic.

3. Spend a day at Coquina beach

Coquina Beach is consistently rated one of the most beautiful beaches in the USA. This is mostly accredited to its perfect powdery-white sand, long stretch of shoreline, and calm turquoise waters. It’s the perfect place to sunbathe, go for a long beach walk, swim, or watch the sunset.

4. Visit DeSoto National Memorial Park

History buffs won’t want to miss out on a visit to DeSoto National Memorial Park. The 26 acre park is set on the coastline in Bradenton where the Tampa Bay and Manatee River merge. The majority of the area is mangrove swamps. You can walk through the many trails, enjoy views of the gulf, and go to the visitors center to learn about the history of the place.

5. Visit Manatee Public Beach

This 7-acre beach has it all: white sand, gentle waves, picnic areas, a gift shop, grills, a café, and a playground. It’s a great place to come with family, friends, or your significant other to relax under the sun and swim all day.
