The friendly environment is amazing, everywhere you go you will meet genuine people. The public schools are amazing. Each of the teachers I had was invested into their students and wanted to succeed and continue their education. I have meet life long friends here, and have been friends with them for 20+ years. There is not a big nightlife, which is great for those with young families. It is a quiet city with beautiful beaches! One thing I would change is the construction going on because traffic gets a little crazier.
Bradenton is a fantastic place to live. Granted we are 10 minutes from the beach and only have a handful of days that we have to worry about grabbing a jacket! The only downfall to Bradenton, FL is the overcrowded mess, there is way to many people that live here for the small town it is, traffic is a nightmare. Although, when you live that close to an island it is pretty much expected but worth it.
I've lived in Bradenton all 22 years of my life, it beautiful, quiet, and so family oriented! I'm now married with a daughter of my own and couldn't think of a more perfect place to raise her. The community is so welcoming, the schools are outstanding, and the weather is always good!
