ManateeCountyWhy Manatee County?  Why not!  The Manatee area provides you the best of all worlds.  Centrally located north of Sarasota county and south of St. Petersburg, you can enjoy all the luxuries and amenities that Tampa and St.  Pete offer with the ability to leave the big cities behind when you are done.   Whether you like the city, country or something in between Manatee County has you covered.  Beautiful beaches for those who love the Gulf such as Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach, and Long Boat key offer some of the best salt life Florida has to offer.  As you head east from the Beaches you hit great places for boat activists like the community of Coral Shores with Canals that lead out to the Bay.  To the North you find the Luxurious homes of Palma Sola and the greens of Golf courses of the popular west side of Bradenton.   Boating and elegance meet in the best boating community of the area: the Inlets.  Water front views combined with master crafted homes and some of the largest reserves of mangroves in the state make up this community.  Want a more country feel – life by the river may be what you seek.  Bright color peacocks and wild life bring this landscape to life in communities like Magnolia Manor, Braden River Lakes and Braden River Ranchettes.  Find easy access to St Petersburg from Palmetto from beautifully maintained Deed Restricted Subdivisions of New Homes.  Find peace and quiet and Acreage with no deed restrictions or HOAs out in the Country of Myakka City or Parrish.  No matter your taste Manatee county has somewhere to call home.

This wealth of all different sorts of people, communities and property is only amplified by the remarkable weather Manatee County enjoys!  Sunshine almost all year round brings so many to retire, make their new home, or live here seasonally.
