Bradenton was settled in 1842 and incorporated in 1903. Old Main Street in down town Bradenton, is lined with buildings that were built in 1842 through 1926... Bob and I went on a Walk-About this past Sunday.
Saturday mornings, there is a farmers market with fresh produce and tents with tables of crafts to purchase. And twice a year the streets are closed and there is a Seafood Festival.
Bradenton has a unique mix of attractions... all within a walkable downtown. This includes Manatee Players Theater, South Florida Museum, Art Center Manatee and a walking tour of hundreds of old homes in Point Pleasant.
Downtown is a mixture of shops and antique stores all mixed with restaurants, offices, our police station and city and county buildings, library and old Victorian homes, condos and our Famed Riverwalk. this Riverwalk links to previous posts.
there are 3 churches that are close to 100 years old mixed in with new modern buildings.
These streets are also used for Art Walks featuring our local artists.
Madi and Mom are hosting a Valentine Dance on Feb 14th... if you want to party click HERE..to get the details.
