Those looking to get away in the Sarasota area will definitely enjoy all the great things a trip to Anna Maria can provide.  This quaint beach getaway is a favorite amongst locals and travelers alike looking to revel in everything from the sandy white beaches to bustling business district with shops, restaurants, and more.

This 7-mile long island sits just off the coast providing a tiny, walkable beach getaway that's perfect for a short day-trip or long vacation.  Everything you need is located on Anna Maria island including great food, a variety of places to stay, and enough recreation to never leave you bored.

Dining on Anna Maria Island will give you a strong sense of the local cuisine and independent restaurants that make it what it is.  There are no big chains or fast food restaurants here, just a rich assortment of award-winning cafes, bistros, beachside tiki bars, and restaurants catering to a wide variety of palates.
