The Robin Preserve is a good place to start. There are bike and walking trails throughout the preserve, with paddle boarding, kayaking, horseback riding along and in the blue waters. Several local artist's galleries, shops that sell everything from Beach ware and accessories, to local artist work. Another great place is St. Armands Circle at the southern point of Longboat Key. The Mote aquarium features Manatee's, Sea Turtles, and many other species of aquatic life.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose Bradenton Beach, FL, USA:
This was our sixth year coming to Anna Maria. Friends had already found this Island when they retired at age 52. It was everything they said it was. When our business sold, we looked all over Arizona, and Florida, Venice, Ft Myers & Naples. This was still the place for us: quaint and friendly, beautiful sites everywhere you look. Birds, manatees & dolphins. Anna Maria has it all.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The inter-coastal waterway views are the main reason we purchased this condo. The second bedroom was the other - room for grandchildren. Beautifully maintained grounds and the friendly people.
