Area Information
You really do have the best of both worlds with this home. On the one hand you are steps from Palma Sola Bay and a very quick drive (9 minutes) to the famous sugar white sands of Anna Maria Island. On the other hand you are close to all the amenities that Bradenton has to offer. There is a shopping center two minutes from the house where you will find supermarkets for your convenience including Fresh Market. You will find a wide selection of shops and restaurants all within ten minutes.
For those who enjoy wildlife you are only a few minutes from the protected lands at Robinson's Preserve Bird Sanctuary. Whether by foot, kayak, or bicycle you will find miles of unspoiled mangroves protecting hundreds of species of indigenous and rare birds.
Nine miles inland you will find Myakka State Park - here you can have your fill of alligators, if they don't spot you first of course!! Myakka is also home to Herrman's Royal Lippizan Stallions where, in the winter months, you can see a show on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The house is situated just a couple of minutes from Palma Sola Causeway. Here you can launch a boat at the public boat slip, rent kayaks, swim and just enjoy the beach.
Drive across the causeway to Anna Maria Island and as well as those world famous beaches you will find lots of fun and quirky boutiques, and many outdoor restaurants where you can soak up the gorgeous views. Anna Maria even has its own Playhouse! Book early as these productions are so good they sell out quickly.
From Anna Maria Island take the free trolley down through Longboat Key to St. Armands Circle where you will find lots of nice shops and restaurants. Stop en route at Mote Marine, the research center and aquarium. From there you can go into Sarasota where you will find an array of cultural activities ranging from The Asolo Rep and VanWezel to the Ringling museum, a beautiful botanical garden and a great Farmers Market on a Saturday morning.
If you like to shop then the outlet mall at Ellenton will provide you with plenty of choice not to mention good value shopping.
For golf enthusiasts, the Bradenton Country Club is on your doorstep and there are world class golf courses within half an hour.
The above list is not exhaustive but it does give you some ideas and there is certainly plenty to do here.
