Bradenton boasts a handful of historical buildings, but its real claim to fame is as the home of Tropicana Products and its quirky culture. Established in 1842, the town has an historical area along the Old Main Street, where the ground floors of buildings are filled with shops and small cafes. The population of about 60,000 is spread out enough for the downtown to maintain a small-town vibe. Outside of downtown, artists flock to a neighborhood with special zoning that allows them sell art from their homes. Here the houses are painted bright colors and gardens grow flowers and plants that thrive in Florida’s humid climate. The sunny weather draws visitors outdoors to parks and sports venues that provide ample space for outdoor activities. Find what you're looking for from your Bradenton holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy United States trip tool.
