Things to Do?

We want to spend about 2 weeks in FL next winter. We are looking for advice on where to go. We like the beach but like things to do....i.e. shopping, dining, etc. Please advise.

Will you be spending all 2 weeks on Anna Maria Island or are you staying other places?

Lots to do here...FL is a big state.

Bradenton Beach is one of three beach areas on anna Maria island, so I would ask questions on the mainf forum for more eyes. This is a fab area, but I think you posted a budget on the other thread you have going that may not get you 2 bedrroms there (was it $1000 per week). you might get somethig a walk from the beach or just over the mainland.

There is a lot of dining choices, some shopping (and further shopping on the mainland and south in the Sarasota area). This is a really wonderplace in florida to visit. Mostly weekly (or even monthly rentals) here so you could do a week here and a week elsewhere if you liked- but if you find something in budget I might say to stay put.

You can do just about any water sport. Biking. Walking. Lots of good places to eat. Bird watching. Cute little shops to browse. Good ice cream. BArs on the beach. Closer to Sarasota is Mote Aquarium, then St. Armand's for shopping. Nearby is the Ellenton Outlet Mall. Also Sarasota Ringling Museum (free on Monday for art museum). Nature preserves, boat rides.
