Anna Maria Island?

Group of grad students looking to unwind, relax, and get tan for a week. We found a relatively nice place on Holmes Beach. Is this a place where we can have fun, or will we be the youngest people everywhere we go?

How is Anna Maria Island in regard to restaurants/shopping/nightlife? Is there any form of transportation around the island?

Ridgeway, Virginia

I can't help you with Anna Maria Island but I can suggest a look-see in the Sarasota forum. Anna Maria is closer to there and a Sarasota area expert might not see your post in the St. Petersburg forum.

My husband and I stayed at Spicer's Cottages back in 1990 and returned a few years later. I must say, the island is beautiful and after a day we Jerseyites adjusted to the s-l-o-w driving. A beautiful place to stay, but not much night life going on then. Most restaraunts closed at 10PM. If you are looking for quiet, this is the place to go...
