Bradenton Beach Restaurants Shopping The Things that Locals Know!

Welcome to Bridge Street on Bradenton Beach

Welcome to historic Bridge Street on beautiful Anna Maria Island.  After the first bridge was built in the 1920’s Bridge Street was the center of the island community. Today the island side of that old wooden bridge still stands, and Bridge Street is a great place for walking, Shopping, Dining, Family Activities, and breath taking views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay.

There are plenty of things to do on Bridge Street from morning to night. Start your day off with breakfast at the Island Creperie on Bradenton Beach Pier, and then keep on top of your putting game at The Fishing Hole Adventure Golf.  When you’re in the mood for shopping, stop at Two Sides of Nature for some island wear, or walk over to Hive Creations for handmade jewelry and exotic décor.

Grab a Steak or some fresh seafood at The Bridge Tender Inn or Island Time Restaurant as the sun slowly slips away into the Gulf of Mexico and island night life is about to begin. Blow off dinner completely and go for drinks at the Sports Lounge or the Drift Inn.

After you have finished your perfect day on  Bridge Street let one of our Anna Maria vacation rental specialists help you get the most from your Anna Maria Island vacation. We have beach houses around the corner from Bridge Street, or anywhere on Anna Maria Island.  Call Island Real Estate today 877-778-6066 and book your Island getaway!

A Great Bakery at Anna Maria Island’s Only Grocery Store Publix

Anna Maria Island usually runs to mom and pop locations, but never fear, we do have one location you will need to stop by during your vacation… Publix Supermarket.  It is a large store that has everything on your grocery list including items for that new recipe you want to try and the best bakery goods this side of the Mississippi.

The Bakery at the Anna Maria Publix

Well that last statement is just my opinion, but wow everything is fantastic.  Whether you need a last minute birthday cake, a unique loaf of bread for dinner or donuts for your office meeting Publix is the perfect place.  Did I mention they also make elegant wedding cakes that are all works of art not to mention delicious.  Usually you go to weddings and they have these frilly cakes that don’t taste as good as they look.  My wedding cake was a Publix original with different shaped tiers and tea lights on the corners.

My husband and I chose a red velvet cake with their famous buttercream icing.  It also had vanilla custard and strawberry filling.  We got so many complements, and there wasn’t any cake left sitting on tables at the end of the reception.  They also have a deli counter that makes sandwiches to order and fresh sushi for the more adventurous.  You can stop there on the way to the beach and get everything you would need for a picnic or just snacks for the kids.
