Anna Maria – Prettiest City in America – Forbes Magazine

September 7, 2013

As seen in Forbes Anna Maria Island made their list of America’s Prettiest Towns and we couldn’t agree more!

Old Florida Charm

Located just south of Tampa Bay and north of Sarasota Anna Maria Island is one of the last vestiges of “Old Florida” charm on Anna Maria Island. Spread across three cities on one little island the azure waters and powder soft sands of our Gulf of Mexico beaches are truly one-of-a-kind. The lack of high rise condos and hotels help keep the wonderful sunrises and sunsets visible from all angles on. Regardless of whether you’re in Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach or the City of Anna Maria.

The island is a major haven for protected wildlife. That includes our migrating Sea Turtles or the vast variety of birds that frequent our island home. The vibrant wildlife makes Anna Maria Island a dream come true for Bed and Breakfast frequenters that love nature too!

Hop on the free island trolley to get a real taste of “Island Life”. Get transported from one end to the other getting to enjoy all of the restaurants and picturesque views we have to offer.
