Family Friendly Activities at Anna Maria Island Rentals

family friendly activities anna maria islandAnna Maria Island is a quiet resort locale on Florida’s west coast. The best way for a family to experience this lovely setting is to rent some bikes and leisurely discover its streets, sights and beaches. If you need more energy then a stop at one of its local ice cream parlors or coffee shops should do the trick. If biking is not to your liking then take a ride on one of the free trolley services that goes round the island every 20 minutes as this is also a great way to familiarize yourself with the island’s places of interest.

This small island boasts 7 miles of beaches with white powder soft sand. The best thing about Anna Maria Island rentals is the fact that a beach is either a short walk away or just outside your doorstep. So aside from walking leisurely on the beach, building sand castles, fishing and swimming what other activities are in store for you and your family on Anna Maria Island? You can rent a boat and watch dolphins up close playfully jump around other marine vessels or catch a glimpse of the more elusive manatee. Tarpon running is also another exhilarating experience one shouldn’t miss. If you want a more personal meeting with aquatic life but don’t know how then the local dive shops provide snorkeling as well as scuba diving lessons that can open up a whole new world for you and your family. If you want to take to the skies and not the water then parasailing could be your activity of choice.

Should you want to stay on land you can take tennis lessons or play at Holmes Beach or Anna Maria public courts. Golf is another well loved sport here with a famous golf academy and 40 nearby golf courses. Another land bound sport the whole family will enjoy at the island is ten pin bowling. For others the most enjoyable sport is shopping and Anna Maria certainly has that. From antiques to beachwear, souvenirs to works of art the island indeed has something for almost anyone.

After a full day of activities and adventure you could be too tired to cook. This is never an issue when you stay at Anna Maria Island rentals because beachside or other charming restaurants are just a stone’s throw away not to mention the deli at the local public store. Your vacation would of course not be complete without the family having a meal at one of the island’s award winning restaurants the Sandbar, Sunhouse Restaurant or having a picnic at one of its beaches.

Another advantage of staying at Anna Maria Island Rentals is the fact that the island is also near other well known Florida attractions like Busch Gardens, the Parrot Jungle, Myakka State Park and the Tampa Aquarium. So after enjoying an exhausting day at a theme or state park the whole family can then relax back at the rental and enjoy another calm evening so they can build up their energy for another fun filled day ahead.
