Yes, absolutely. I usually take my dogs to Desoto Landing though because bikes are allowed in Robinson. No bikes in Desoto. Enjoy!

Hello, going to be staying in bradenton for 2 weeks from July 15th, we will be staying in a villa with a car. Is there anything we can't miss out to do while there? we're already planning to visit annamaria island and do the Robinson nature preserve and the kayaking but not sure what else to do? Thank you!
