anna maria islandIt’s not surprising that everytime we turn around someone is talking about Anna Maria Island!  Anna Maria boasts miles of beach and bayfront also, the ever popular Holmes and Bradenton beaches..  It seems that those of my “ website friends” that are specifically looking at Anna Maria have a heart full of fun, a grass roots spirit and a zest for life that’s appealing. Fun people love Anna Maria and you know who you are…

With that said, and hot off the press,, has just named Anna Maria one the of the “Top Ten Islands to visit in the United States”.  Wow!  That’s big, and we knew it all along…  What a quaint, unique community we possess!

My husband and I visit Anna Maria Island often, though we live in Sarasota, which is just a hop and skip away..  We are close friends to Bill Herlihy who owns Bridge Street Bistro, a fabulous restaurant at 111 Gulf and Deb Snaidak who owns Island Bazaar, a beach shop on Bridge Street.  Island Bazaar has anything beachy you might ever need!  We have a favorite tradition to meet friends on Anna Maria Sunday afternoons for calamari at the Sand Bar Restaurant.. It’s a classic and where else can you dig your toes in the sand while having dinner?

It worth the trip for however long..  Check out the article The Sarasota Herald Tribune has just published!  It’s all good news!
