Learn more about Bradenton

Bradenton can be described as  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. 

Located between Tampa/St. Petersburg and Sarasota, Bradenton is the city seat of Manatee County and a fabulous place to explore the arts, historical attractions, or simply have fun in the sun at the numerous beaches in the area.  Here you can spend an evening dining out or have a drink with friends in one of the many restaurants or pubs in downtown’s historic Old Main Street. The city is also known for its Historic District and the Village of the Arts. Historic buildings, street cafes, cozy restaurants, small  stores and boutiques, stuffed with all kinds of artwork are also around. You will love it there.
