About Bradenton Beach

With its scenic location on the Gulf of Mexico, Bradenton welcomes vacationers who love Florida sunshine. Stay at your choice of waterfront Bradenton vacation rentals, and get ready for a fun-filled trip to the Gulf Coast.


Bradenton is less than 10 miles from the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, and the city is connected to beaches and neighboring communities by bridges, highways, and other major roads. Like much of West Florida, it’s best to navigate the city by car, the quickest way to get from Bradenton vacation rentals to any of the area attractions. Public transit options are available too, including the Manatee County Area Transit bus system and the free trolley system on nearby Anna Maria Island.


Bradenton enjoys pleasant warm weather year-round, with temperatures climbing to about 90 degrees throughout the summer months and dipping to about 70 degrees in the winter months. The rainy season in Bradenton falls during July and August, so summer visitors should be sure to pack umbrellas and raincoats. The city stays driest during spring and fall.

Go a little further afield to visit legendary Siesta Beach, just 20 miles south of Bradenton. The sand here is nearly 100 percent quartz, so it sparkles and stays cool even when the temperatures heat up.

Just east of Bradenton, Lake Manatee State Park is a top place to swim, fish, picnic, and even camp. While visitors won’t spot manatees here, they can hike through well-preserved flatwoods, marshes, and forests. For an action-packed day of kayaking, paddle boarding, and bird-watching, don’t miss a trip to Robinson Preserve in West Bradenton.
