Arts & Entertainment
The main attractions on Anna Maria Island are the beautiful beaches and tropical weather. However, visitors can supplement their lazy days with shopping trips, strolls around the City Pier, and excursions to nearby Bradenton and Sarasota. Theater fans can take in a show by The Island Players, who put on a full season of comedies, mysteries and a special summer presentation of classic Shakespeare. If history is your buff, nearby Bradenton offers many historical attractions of Native Americans and dramatic Spanish conquests.
