West Bradenton Reviews

I am a returning resident. I moved to Bradenton with my mother at the age of 4. I grew up riding bikes with friends through town. Going to the beach by way of the city transit bus. There was alway something to do. Now as an adult I enjoy the beach with my children and the local Farmers Market held downtown on the weekends. It is sad though that times have changed so much from when i was child. You dont see too many kids out riding bikes like you use to. Overall the growth of Bradenton has been vast. Its seems like for as small a town as Bradenton is it has grown my leaps and bounds and continues to . With every snowbird as we call them that comes to visit with family the more choose to stay and move here. Great for our economy bad for our roads.

I love the beach! You have to travel a bit and love to be outdoorsy to have fun here. It is not a big city and there are many elderly, it is definitely a retirement city. It's nice that it's close to Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota.
I love the down town and the Bradenton River. Also, Manatee Memorial is in Bradenton, and it is a great Cardiovascular Hospital. Also, Blake Medical
Center is large, convenient and professional. I would like to improve down town life, especially with it being on the water.
