I grew up in Bradenton and have moved away 3 times. I keep coming back, as nothing compares to the friendliness of this town. Bradenton continues to improve with great public spaces, cool venues and wonderful shops and restaurants. I can't imagine completing my work life and retiring in any other place.

Bradenton is truly a great place to live, work and play. I have traveled to many other cities and non are as friendly or as charming as Bradenton, Florida. This is a wonderful city that I am proud to call my home town!

We had been searching and searching for many years for a place to relocate in Florida. Every year, we always ended up in Bradenton, no matter where our search would be. Such a friendly and clean town with friendly people. We love the beaches, passing the farms, the Riverwalk and Manatee River. After searching for 7 years, we bought our house and you can guess where!! Yep, we recently moved to Bradenton and LOVE IT!!!
