If your travel plans include sunny Florida, Bradenton is a must see. Located between Tampa and Sarasota is the city known as ?the friendly city?. Situated on the mainland, it is surrounded by both fresh and salt water. This tropical paradise offers great beaches, scenery, and water activities but there is much more to do in Bradenton.
Some of the best outdoor recreational activities are found here. The water activities are fantastic with great fishing, boating, and canoeing on one of the many local rivers. There are gorgeous sunsets when the sun drops below the Gulf of Mexico; it?s an experience that will not be forgotten. Or, perhaps a hot air balloon ride over the city that allows for a fantastic view of the water below. For the golfer, the River Run golf course is one of the area?s most popular.
Fantastic nightlife and culture is also a part of Bradenton. There are many hot night spots including Mugs Grill and Bar and Club R J?s which was given a five star rating by the local residents. If culture is what you are looking for, there are live stage performances and many fascinating local museums. Or just relax with a walk along the waterfront.
In Bradenton there are always fun activities going on. There is a ?Night with the Rays?, a baseball game between the Minnesota Twins and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, an ?Arts Alive? fest at the village of arts, just to mention a few.
Don?t miss Bradenton.
