Historic Bridge Street Bradenton Beach Merchants on Anna Maria Island

In 1922 the first bridge was opened from the Village of Cortez to Bridge Street Bradenton Beach, on Anna Maria Island.  Before this time visitors could only get to Anna Maria Island by boat.  This made Bridge Street the center of the bustling island community, as it remains today.  The old wooden bridge was saved, and turned in to the Bridge Street fishing pier.

Here is a list of all the restaurants, shops, galleries and activities.  Please click on the colored names below to take you to their web site for more information(not all the businesses have a web site).
