Bradenton Real Estate

Just across the drawbridge and a quick 5 miles onto the mainland and you can explore the old-Florida charm of Bradenton.  With a population around 50,000 it’s a big small town with lots to offer.  Don’t miss the Riverwalk or the Village of the Arts a working community of artists.  Bradenton is home to an annual blues-fest and the annual Spring training of the  Pittsburg Pirates at McKechnie field.  So take a break from the Beach and visit Robinson Preserve, DeSoto Memorial park ( the landing point of Hernando DeSoto in 1539), and the unique fishing village of Cortez, with its funky and delicious dock-side seafood dining.
