Anna Maria Island Fun

With stunning white-sand beaches, Old Florida buildings, and a fast-growing culinary scene, Anna Maria Island is a true tropical paradise. The island is only 7 miles long and comprises three cities: Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, and Bradenton Beach, the last of which connects to Bradenton on mainland Florida. In recent years, the island has become a popular snowbird destination for retirees wanting an extended stay.

Wherever you visit, you’ll find something to do, and even if you spend most of your time lounging on the beaches, you’ll leave with some incredible memories. With that said, if you’re not content to lie on a beach — or if you want to add a few excursions to your itinerary in between your regular swimming and sunbathing sessions — you’ll have plenty of options.
