Relax and recharge in your Bradenton vacation rental


Located between Sarasota and Tampa, Bradenton stands out among the rest as the premier destination in Manatee County. Surrounded by waterways, this warm weather locale is famous for sandy beaches and of course, manatees! There’s plenty to see and do in the Bradenton area, including golf, watersports, shopping, fishing, and more.

When staying in Bradenton condo rentals instead of hotel, you’ll have much more space and privacy, plus cost savings when booking a property for a large group. Some of our Bradenton vacation rentals even come with special amenities like a backyard pool, washer/dryer units, and bicycles. Whether you’re looking for a super-sized modern villa with an indoor pool, or a cozy beachfront bungalow, you can find it on our site.

Climate


It’s no surprise that this city has flawless weather year-round. Temperatures climbing to about 90 degrees throughout the summer months and dipping to about 70 degrees in the winter months.

Top activities and attractions


Don’t forget your clubs on your next trip, trust us. With over twenty golf courses within a half hour of the city, catering to all skill levels, you’ll have plenty of options. If you choose a rental from FloridaRentals.com, chances are you may even be staying in a property lining a fairway!

Popular courses include River Run Golf Links, Legacy Golf Club at Lakewood Ranch, a links-style course, and Manatee County Golf Course, which has four sets of tees for different skill levels.

Golf isn’t your thing? That’s fine, there's so much to do on the water. The area beaches are world renowned, and that includes nearby Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, Venice, Siesta Key, and Lido Key. Grab a towel, a bottle of sunscreen, and your favorite shovel and head to the beach.

For the best family-attractions in Bradenton, consider visiting the South Florida Museum which has a planetarium attached. Other points of interest include Gamble Plantation Historic park, where an antebellum mansion is set on a former sugar plantation, the historic town of Cortez, a quaint Old Florida fishing village, and Emerson Point Preserve, a hiker's paradise enveloped by a tropical hammock.

Stop in to a Pittsburgh Pirates spring training game from February through March. Discover Florida’s Spanish heritage at the De Soto National Memorial, go for a bike tour of the beautiful Robinson Nature Preserve, and explore an authentic fishing village at Cortez.

The Manatee Village Historical Park is a collection of restored, historic buildings from Manatee County's pioneer past. The historical park includes a courthouse, one-room schoolhouse, farmhouse, general store, boat shop, steam engine and a Florida cowboy bunkhouse.

Annual events


Bradenton has a surprising number of annual events for such a small community. For music-lovers the Bradenton Blues Festival showcases talented Florida musicians every December. In February, the Cortez Seafood Festival offers an inventive look at popular dishes utilizing fresh fish. Try the octopus and crab! Lastly, the manatee is revered in this area, and the Manatee County Fair is a family-friendly event with food booths, crafts, and barn tours with livestock. See a manatee up close!

The best restaurants and bars


Come hungry. There are almost 400 restaurants in the city, so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. For the best breakfast in the area, eat at Sage’s Biscuit Cafe where the coffee and omelettes are incredible. At lunch, try the award-winning pizza at Fire & Stone and pair it with a couple of glasses of red wine. For fried fresh fish, stop in to Anna Maria Oyster Bar where the fish and chips is a crowd pleaser. When it’s time for dinner, The Riverhouse Reef & Grill serves dinner with an incredible view of the water. Bon appetit!
