We've lived in Manatee County since 2002 and have found Bradenton to be the friendliest city around. It has a sleepy southern charm, a lot of beautiful spots, and great things to do. We can't help but smile at those around us because we're living in a little part of paradise.

I was staying in Largo in Pinellas County and noticed the Taking Flight GeoTour. I made a couple of trips over the Sunshine Bridge in order to find the caches, but they won't be my last. The caches introduced me to so many amazing natural places to re-visit! Thanks for the tour!!

People travel from near and far just to do the Taking Flight GeoTour. And it is well worth it. It is absolutely amazing. A little bit of exercise, beautiful sights, amazing wildlife; you are going to learn some interesting facts in a most fun way, and you can cache too. If you think I am a promoter of this event in some way, you would be wrong. I am just excited at how interesting and enjoyable this tour is. And how helpful the staff was. This GeoTour is perfect for kids of all ages. And we know that Geocachers are all just really big kids. Again - well worth the trip.
