Recommended Bradenton Activities for 6-yr old

We're going to be in Bradenton for a week in late April. Any recommendations on kindergartner-friend beaches (that include restrooms!) and other activities that we can put in the mix to keep things interesting? She loves animals of every kind. We'll have a car, and are happy to drive to Tampa or other day-trips, but aren't planning on Orlando this time.

Where are you staying? Look into Mote Marine. http://www.mote.org/e Lab.

Beaches with restrooms are Bradenton , Cocina and Holmes Busch Gardens is a day trip.

At that age aside from Mote, a must do, there is also Jungle Gardens. Plan to take the Mote boat as well.

South Florida Museum in bradeton has manatees. It is right next to the new River Walk area along the river. River Walk has a great playground. You can then cross the river and visit Emerson Point Preserve. It has nature trails and a lookout tower to climb. You can wade in the water at the western edge of the preserve and at some of the piers on the north and south sides of the preserve and look for creatures in the sea grass. Mote Marine in Sarasota is a good choice too.

Either of the public beaches have restrooms and playgrounds. These are on Anna Maria Island. Lots of local parks around. Lowery Park Zoo is great.
