If you plan to relocate to Florida, the Bradenton area offers a relatively unique, rich mix of living opportunities. As in many other parts of Florida this mix includes places with an old-Florida small town feel, as well as pricier beach front property and a growing choice of new construction in the other towns and unincorporated areas of Manatee County.

Unlike most areas in Florida, however, here in Bradenton you can enjoy a truly rural community away from the noise, congestion, and frenetic pace of big-city urban America, yet have all the amenities that a big city (Tampa-StP-C) has to offer.

You can enjoy quiet, country charm and a laid-back pace of living, yet be close to cultural riches like opera, symphony, ballet, theater and fine art
You can also enjoy the delights of hassle-free access to pristine barrier island beaches and relaxed boating on a myriad of quiet bays, lakes and rivers, yet still be close enough to the rest of the Tampa Bay cities to take in big-time professional sports or an active night life.
You don’t have to put up with much jet noise, yet you can easily fly off from Tampa International to the rest of the world.
And finally, while still enjoying your relative isolation, you’ll know that just down I-75 south of you a few minutes is your own Sarasota-Bradenton regional airport, an opera, a slew of museums, one of the University of South Florida campuses (to go with your own Manatee Community College), a famous aquarium, and some really major additional shopping – all at Sarasota.

Cost of Living
Oh, and did we tell you that the Bradenton area, as well as Tampa Bay in general, is more affordable than much of Florida, let alone the rest of the country?
