Many of Sarasota’s most interesting sights are close to Palmetto, so it is a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. The Manatee Convention Center and the South Florida Museum are amongst the many best places to explore here. Also worth checking out are the Gamble Plantation State Park and the Red Barn Flea Market Plaza.
Sports fans who are into baseball will love iconic McKechnie Field, Bradenton, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the popular Bradenton Marauders. After enjoying the game, follow local sports fans to a nearby pub to either celebrate, or commiserate, depending on the score.
When you’re ready to rest up after a day spent exploring the many charms of Palmetto, check in to one of the many local bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. Make reservations for the Bradenton-Days Inn Near The Gulf, the Siesta Inn and Suites, Bradenton, or the Courtyard by Marriott Bradenton Sarasota Riverfront.
