Spending holidays making memories is especially exceptional on Anna Maria Island. Florida’s best beaches are on the Gulf side. Known for the sugar sands, aqua clear waters and spectacular sunsets, make this a perfect location for your Labor Day getaway.
*Rent bikes or scooters to scout the island and nature trails.
*Rent a small boat or kayaks and plan a sand bar party, for your family. Bring a picnic and do some shallow water shelling and fishing if you please.
*Beat the heat with a Craft Beer Tour on the Free Trolley.
*Charter Fishing and dolphin tours are always a hit, remember to bring your camera and charge your cell phones.
