Make a holiday rental house or villa in Bradenton, Florida your home away from home

Bradenton sits at the bottom of Tampa Bay, surrounded by 20 mile of glorious white sand beaches and a string of barrier islands sweeping across the bay. A holiday rental in Bradenton is not just used for magnificent beach breaks and spectacular golf holidays though; Bradenton also has a wealth of important historical monuments, excellent fishing opportunities, top class shopping and world renowned restaurants.

Places to holiday in Bradenton, Florida

Sarasota is rich in museums, theatres and historical regions and restaurants, and is located adjacent to Bradenton in Tampa Bay. The Gamble Plantation is the last remaining site of its kind in Florida, and is essential viewing for those with any interest in history staying in a Bradenton villa.

Longboat Key is a favourite destination with shell collectors, and Venice beach is famed for being a magnet for shark tooth hunters.

Things to do in Bradenton, Florida

Bradenton is lucky enough to be surrounded by a huge variety of spectacular landscapes. The white gulf beaches of the coast are a huge attraction drawing visitors to taking self catering holiday villas and beach houses in Bradenton. If you can drag yourself away from the beaches though, and head inland, there are two magnificent state parks and 22 municipal parks including the Palma Sola Botanical Park and the DeSoto National Park, where walking among the unspoilt landscape is a blissfully relaxing experience.

Those taking a holiday rental in Bradenton also have 30 golf courses at their disposal. Many of these are open to the public, and due to the huge variety and difficulty of courses, they are rarely crowded.

Downtown Bradenton has been revived as a dynamic artistic area in recent years, and the Main Street is now a honey pot of art studios and galleries. Saturday sees the centre transformed into a bustling farmers market, where bargains of all varieties can be found, including exceptionally fresh local fish, which makes taking a self catering beach house in Bradenton such a treat for chefs!

If buying fresh fish seems to be cheating, there is extensive fishing available. Manatee River, Tampa Bay and Sarasota Bay are all fishing centres, and charters are easily found. Water sports and dolphin tours as well as fishing charters can be found at the Bradenton docks.

Weather in Bradenton, Florida

Florida has become a favourite holiday destination not only due to the magnificent natural surroundings and facilities but also due to the fine weather. Summers are long and dry, with average temperatures from May until October remaining above 30˚C.
