Share the Sunshine
Summer 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.

Before your next trip, take a moment to learn how you, too, can #LoveItLikeaLocal.
