                      Anna Maria Island is a relaxing beach community on the Gulf of Mexico. The dining and entertainment options are many, and there are miles of beautiful white beaches to relax or play on. Recreation on the island includes sailing, fishing, parasailing, tennis, golfing, and kayaking. Getting around on the island is easy. You can drive, take the free trolley, walk, bike, or rent a segway scooter. Great shopping is available from the high-end shops at St. Armand's Circle in Sarasota to the outlet mall in Bradenton, with plenty of great local arts and crafts located right here on the island. There are local festivals, local theater, the Mote Marine Aquarium and Ringling Museum of the Circus in Sarasota, Bishop Planetarium in Bradenton, and Grapefruit League baseball in both Bradenton and Sarasota. Disney World and the assorted family parks of Orlando are just two hours away. And there is nothing like a sunset over the Gulf. Anna Maria Island welcomes you home!
