Holidays in Sarasota, Bradenton & Anna Marie Island

A hidden Florida that wants to be found…

Sarasota, Bradenton, and Anna Maria Island are like the cool cousins in Florida's family of holiday spots. Sarasota, also known as the "Cultural Coast" of Florida, is a vibrant and sunny city on the Gulf Coast that's as fun as it is beautiful.

Bradenton, on the other hand, is that hipster cousin who hangs out in the Village of the Arts, where creativity flows like the Gulf breeze. Catching a Pirates' game at LECOM Park is like scoring a home run of fun.

And Anna Maria Island? It's your laid-back beach buddy who insists on flip-flops and bikes for getting around. You'll forget about shoes here as you soak up the sun on its pristine beaches and dive into clear turquoise waters.

So, whether you're into high-brow arts, quirky creativity, or simply want to chill by the beach, this trio of destinations on Florida's Gulf Coast has got your back for a seriously fun time!
