Anybody familiar with the place? I'm heading down there for a week in March. Does anyone have any recs on places to eat, things to do, etc. ?
I haven't been around these parts in a while. Hope everyone is well.
It is super close to where I am (Sarasota) but I don't know much about it. Come on down to Siesta Key and I can tell you allllllll you want to know.
We went there about 5 years ago and I loved it. Beautiful beach. One of my best friend's dad had a sailing charter there for years, but I think they sold it a while back. Don't remember the name.
Anna Maria Island is a nice little beach town, very laid back.
You probably won't find many bars, but Mr. Bones BBQ is pretty good.
There's a pier on the northeastern side of the island where you can see the Tampa skyline/St. Pete/Sunshine Skyway Bridge.. pretty cool.
Also, if you like baseball, the Pirates have their spring training in Bradenton, which is a short drive.
I've only been a few times so that's all I can offer. Hope you enjoy your time down here though

Thanks, BT. I'll be there with my 11 and 8 year old nephews who love baseball, so them seeing the big boys and maybe getting autographs would probably be a thrill for them.
Any idea how hard/easy it is to go watch that and the best time to go?
Here's a schedule, anytime is a good time as long as it's not raining. Spring training games are a lot of fun, especially for the kids
I looked it up after you mentioned it. Is it an all day event and do they always do they autograph thing? I imagine for boys that age, the most fun part would be getting an autograph and meeting an MLB player.
No, they just play a regular 9 inning baseball game. Get there about an hour before game time for autographs, you'll be able to go down to the first row and a lot of the players will be willing to sign autographs as they warm up.
Thanks. That will probably make their day. I'm going to take them to that.
The girl im seeing grew up there, she still plays in their indoor volleyball league. I'll ask her and reply later tonight or tomorrow assuming i remember lol
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
