Entertainment & Activities
Where to go, what to do in Bradenton, Florida! I have seen signs that say "Keep Bradenton Weird." Do not let that keep you away, especially if you have small children. Weird is Baby Boomers doing their 60-70's thing! Never seen anything that caused me to worry!
I love baseball, the field is clean, and the food is very good. The Pittsburgh Pirates have trained. there since 1927. There are five MlB teams also training in the general area so you have a good chance to see your team also.

This is a MUST! Great burgers (and not skinny!). Clean, can eat out on a picnic table. Especially good if you have a little spare time to our marvelous sunsets! Fast service, great selection of food and beer. Actually serve soft drinks in a bottle! I would expect Frankie and Annette to be seated next to me!

The restaurant has a New Orleans theme. The barbecue is a bit non-traditional spice/flavor wise but good. Service is good. A change fo pace from the more typical barbecue .

A bit upscale but if you would like a more typical sit-down restaurant, you are in business ! The ambience is very nice ad the food is first rate. Little more price wise but worth it.

This is a great museum for younger children. It is very informative and hands-on whereby even my twenty-eight year-old son was learning things. Laid-back atmosphere without huge crowds so children can run a bit.

Arts & Culture
There are several galleries and homes that wold constitute a self-guided tour. There is also a used record store that is really cool. Bradenton has a reputation for being "out there" and this is clearly why. But then again, if it is just like home, why come? Grateful Dead anyone?

It is right in Bradenton and documents the mission of Hernando DeSoto, one of the first Spanish explorers of our country. Very informative with live demonstrations daily. Full disclosure: I an an NPS Living History/Weapons Demonstrator back home so I am biased.

This beach, which does require a car to get to, is listed as one of the best tin the world by Conde Nast. There are no amenities there and you might have to get there early but it is gorgeous. Unspoiled. Might be good at night also.

Anna Maria is the flagship beach on the island. Parking is an issue but there is easy public transportation available. White sand, quiet, unspoiled, idyllic. WOW!
