We stayed at the Bridgewalk Resort on our recent trip to Anna Maria Island in Bradenton Beach. The street is lined with little shops, cafes and restaurants, where there always seems to be live music playing. And within two minutes you can walk the entire street, from the beautiful gulf beach to a fishing pier jutting out onto the salty bay.
The famous Grouper Sandwich at The Sandbar Restaurant on Anna Maria Island, Florida is grilled, blackened or fried, and only available when it is fresh from the water. Thick slice of tomato, perfect bun, lettuce, onion and pickle with a side of fries. With your toes in the sand, there is no better eating.
