New to Holmes/AMI beach areas... suggestions ?

Wish I had read these posts before booking but we are staying at 17th st in W. Holmes, Bradenton Beach club. We have 2 toddlers (2 & 3 yrs) and was hoping for some insight on good nearby restaurants, cafes, grocery in walking distance (or close by) from this area? And we will rent a car so activities (besides the beach) that the kids (and adults) will enjoy! I'm so excited esp after seeing the first snow yesterday in ct! Brrrr! Thanks in advance!

You will be staying right in the middle of everything and with tons of retsaurants, shops and stores within walking distance.

We usually stay at 18th street (La Costa) which is right next to your home :-)

For Breakfast I would suggest the Gulf Drive Cafe.

Lunch or Dinner would be Beach House for me... It´s a nice walk along the beach (10 minute walk southwards)

There is Oma´s Pizza, Sun House Restaurant, Bridgetender Inn, Drift Inn, Rotten Ralph´s Restaurant... (and this is only the near sourroundings)

You will love this place for sure!

There is a nice mini golf course at Bridge Street.

You can Parasail, rent a boat, charter a boat, dive, snorchel, rent wave runners...

A day trip to Myakka State Park, Ringling Museum, St.Armands Circle, Mote Aquarium.

Sooo much to do and to explore.

What are your main interests?
