Bradenton Reviews

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 moved to Bradenton Fl about nine years ago. It is a very small and country area in comparison to my hometown. Bradenton is very quaint where everyone mostly knows everyone or at least a family member. The schools are not as challenging as what I am accustomed to. The neighborhoods presents as family oriented and football fanatics. The children play outside at will free from the thoughts of danger. Within the last few years the crime rate has increased and the number of children in Foster care has increased, which is sad. I am hoping with the increase in the awareness of drug overdoses and the availability of treatment will decrease the amount of children in states custody allowing this town to maintain its family oriented motif.
