The area is fabulous and you will definetly enjoy it!

It is much quieter than Siesta Key though and you won´t have a lot night activity there. Restaurants and bars are the only choice :--)

It won´t be really warm by then (like summer) but normally it is getting WARMER then :-) Water is a bit cool (residents will call it ICEY) but still doable!

A lot of day trips possible...

Ringling museum (mondays free entrance)

Mote Aquarium

Myakka State Park

Ellenton Outlet Mall

Robinson Preserve

St.Armand´s Circle

Siesta Beach :-)))

You will be very happy about your dads mistake :) You might even be telling the story of how you discovered Anna Maria for decades after as you come back every year on your vacation. When people visit they rarely visit just once - they visit for years if not decades if not for generations to follow.

There is lots of helpful advice in this forum about where to stay, where to eat and things to do.

Have a wonderful vacation
