postheadericon Everything Anna Maria


OK, here it is…everything else Anna Maria…OK, well maybe not everything, but I am just one little ole person, right!  If you’re on the island you should definitely check out Historic Bridge Street which is located on the south end of the island, just north of the Sarasota Bay.  It is very picturesque in the sense that boats sit anchored in the bay and you as you look along the coastline you will see long docks with boats tied to the ends.  The big clock is just above a nice shady area which is commonly used for fisherman.  There are a few restaurants on Bridge St. including Rotten Ralph’s and the Island Creperie.  Outfitters like Segway Tour operators and Mini Golf also call this street home.  There is also a market held weekly from November-April on select Saturdays!  (200 Bridge St.)

Another popular fishing pier is the City Pier which is at the other end of the island.  This piers backdrop is the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and is just around the bend from the popular Rod and Reel Pier and Bean Point.  If fishing is your thing you should definitely drop a line here!  (100 Bay Blvd.)

You really can’t go to Anna Maria Island and not eat at or at least visit the Rod and Reel Pier.  This old-Florida Pier is such a  quaint little place that will bring you back in time.  It is home to the Rod and Reel Pier Restaurant and as we were eating there we saw dolphins swimming just off of the pier!  We also love watching the fisherman bring in the catches!  (875 North Shore Drive)

There are so many restaurants on the island you’ll probably have a hard time picking which ones to eat at like we did!  We love the Beachhouse Restaurant because the first time we ever went to the island we attended a wedding reception there and it was so so fun!  Here are a few pics from there….

And here are a few of us enjoying our trip!


If you’re looking for fun things to do around the island it certainly will not disappoint you!  There is a huge selection of things to rent like kayaks for paddling through the clear waters,  Stand Up Paddleboards, jet ski’s, boats, and bikes…the list goes on and on!  You can do a charter fishing tour or spend the day at a spa…you can head down to St. Armand’s Circle for some of the best shopping around.  Anna Maria Island also has a free Trolley that will take you all over the entire island and drop you off at any one of the 80 stops to shop, dine, walk, or anything else you desire!
