The Bradenton neighborhoods are incredibly diverse. They range from upscale to “questionable.” Therefore, the prospective home buyer needs to be careful where he buys if he wants to be happy in the future. But isn’t that true for every big city in the world?
The fact is that Bradenton is the largest city in the area. Bradenton is the hub for commerce, government services, healthcare, education, and culture.

Bradenton is a “riverfront community” with a unique mixture of heritage, culture, arts and sports. History also plays an important role because the first European “tourist” set foot on land somewhere in the Bradenton area. However, the first Spanish “visitors” who came to the area did not stay for good. The settlers, who came centuries later, liked it there very much and they did settle in that area. They became the nucleolus of the new city on the Braden River.
Today the capital of Manatee County is a remarkable destination where different people from all over the world come together. Families, young people, young professional, workers, retirees and all different kinds of businesses create a vibrant atmosphere.
Visitor attractions, like the cultural history museum, historic Main Street or the lively Village of the Arts are also one piece of this mosaic, which is called Bradenton. Events and activities add to a busy schedule. The famous “River Walk,” for example, offers concerts, art talks, festivals educational events, art making or living history events. Movies, food, volleyball, yoga, skateboarding, fishing, boating and all kinds of exercise are part of the River Walk.
