Share the Sunshine
Spring 2021 Edition
Come visit Anna Maria Island with its clear turquoise water and sugar-white beaches. Here, the "old" Florida charm can still be found, flip-flops are a way of life, and the speed limit never exceeds 35 miles per hour.
Walk the entire gulf coastline on pristine beaches, watch the kids play in the sand, observe turtles nesting and dolphins diving.

Uncover the treasures awaiting in the quaint shopping districts throughout the island.
Enjoy the day biking, kayaking, boating, sailing, fishing, parasailing, and more. Finish the day with dinner at one of the island's many restaurants and enjoy a picture-perfect sunset.
One visit to Anna Maria Island and you will be calling it "My Island in the Sun."

Passport Program
An exciting cooperative neighborhood initiative which includes the cities of Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach, and Cortez Fishing Village, bringing the community together in support of one another.
Passport holders will visit participating businesses and get their passport stamped. Once the required (5) stamps from each of the island's 4 municipalities are obtained (20 stamps total), passport holders will bring their completed passports to the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce where they will receive a free Anna Maria Island / Cortez Fishing Village T shirt. They will also be placed in a quarterly raffle to potentially win additional prizes. No purchase necessary, but fun is guaranteed!

Passports are good until Dec. 31, 2021

You can obtain a PASSPORT at any of the participating merchants and many other businesses on Anna Maria Island and Cortez.

Manatee County continues Beach ConneXion Shuttle

In an effort to help drivers avoid heavy beach crowds Manatee County Area Transit continues to offer free rides onto and off of Anna Maria Island via Manatee Avenue.
The Beach ConneXion Shuttle will operate weekends and holidays from December through April from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Anyone traveling to Manatee Public Beach via Manatee Avenue can pick up the Beach ConneXion Shuttle free of fare at the sheltered bus stop on the northeast corner of Manatee Avenue and 75th Street West, adjacent to the commercial center there. On their return trip, passengers can get off at the same bus stop as the Shuttle will loop around the commercial area and serve the same stop which ensures the safety and convenience of Shuttle passengers.

There are also several bus stops between Manatee Avenue/75th Street West and Manatee County Public Beach, and passengers can get on or off the Shuttle at any of
these bus stops as well. 
The all new Anna Maria Island Arts & Culture Map is now available!
Make sure to stop by the Chamber office to pick up your copy.
