Community Guide

Live where others just vacation! Crystal blue waters, waves crashing on the sandy beaches, grass of the dunes fluttering in the salt-water breeze. This resort-style beach life is just steps away from Manatee County Communities. From the Anna Maria Bayfront Park with its Sunshine Skyway Bridge vista and access to Eggmont Key, to the dog-friendly spaces of Palma Sola Causeway Park with its dock, picnic areas and outdoor grills, there's plenty of waterfront recreation right at residents' fingertips. And it doesn't stop there; our dozens of parks in Manatee County neighborhoods offer boat ramps, boardwalks, marinas, beachfront pavilions and more. We've got all your water recreation needs and luxury gulf-front desires just waiting to be discovered in Manatee County and our Palmetto areas.

The urban economy of Manatee County is as dynamic as our views, and our local government is in the top 5% of the nation's fiscally strongest. We see a great mix of well loved mom-and-pop shops, established companies and big retailers, and Bradenton-Sarasota was listed as one of the top 10 best metro areas for small businesses.

For homebuyers, this is paradise. Choose residential serenity at Snead Island, where 365 acres of preserve sprawl across the western end, or in the "heavenly land" of Terra Ceia. Wherever you end up, our Manatee County communities will have you living every day as if it was a holiday.
