Location description from owner

The Southwest Gulf Coast region

The Gulf Coast offers one of the best and most relaxed lifestyles anywhere. The weather is great, but it will be hot in summer, it may be stormy in fall, and it may not be sunny ALL the time in winter, although it will usually be warmer than Europe.

The food can be good whether you eat in or out. Fresh fruit especially is wonderful. Florida is famed for its oranges, but honeydew melon or mango are a very special start to the day.

Bradenton

Bradenton, home to the South Florida Museum, is a busy and friendly residential town. Cortez Road abounds with restaurants, many of them serving wonderful seafood. Anna Maria Island is 10 minutes drive away, maybe a little longer if the drawbridge is up to let boats pass. We love going to Coquina Beach, or to Manatee Beach where you can park close to the Cafe most days. The food is good, the coffee ad lib and there is usually a singer around dusk. Great place to watch the sun set over the Gulf.

Sarasota, twelve miles south of Bradenton, has some excellent cultural venues: the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, and the Asolo Theatre are recommended. Sarasota was the winter home of the Ringling Circus, and John & Mabel Ringling built a spectacular home, Ca D'Zan, there. You can see not only the home, but also the art which they collected and which is housed in a gallery. If you like Rubens, del Cairo and Reynolds, go there.

When you're all arted out, head off for Myakka State Park. You will want a full day there. Have an airboat ride; take the "tram" and learn how the vegetation has been changed by the settlers; have a walk up the tower and through the canopy; take a picnic down to Clay Gully.
