Beautifully situated along the Manatee River, Bradenton lies east of nearby Gulf beaches, north of Sarasota, and south of cities like Tampa and Clearwater. The area was first discovered in 1539 by famed conquistador Hernando de Soto. Over 300 years later in 1903, it was named Bradentown after a local doctor who provided refuge for settlers that had been attacked by Indians. It wasn't until 1943, that Bradenton was finally formed thanks to the merging of Bradentown and Manatee.

Today, Bradenton attracts tourists from around the world to its excellent museums, exciting parks, fascinating artist community, and vibrant downtown. Whether you're visiting the city to enjoy one of these attractions or for another reason entirely, it's important that you find the right hotel for your needs so nothing stands in the way of you having a great trip.

When to Visit Bradenton, FL

The best time to visit Bradenton is between September and December, when temperatures reach highs of upper 70s to mid-80s. It's the perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities like paddle boarding, fishing, and horseback riding, and to take advantage of exciting events like Bayfest, ArtsHop, and Boofest. Plus, it will be shoulder season so you won't have to worry about large crowds, bad traffic, or no place to set up your umbrella on the beach. An added bonus: hotel rates will be very affordable and a variety of discounts may be available.

Between May and August, Bradenton is hot, humid, and wet, with temperatures reaching highs of upper 80s to low 90s, with large amounts of rain falling in July and August. Despite the heat and occasional downpours, this is the time of year that families converge on the city's attractions. Luckily, you won't compete with nearly as many crowds as you would during high season, and you'll only have moderate amounts of traffic to deal with. You'll also benefit from affordable hotel rates and fun seasonal events.

Like many cities in Florida, Bradenton is a winter destination, so January to April will be the most crowded time to visit. As a result, you'll face everything from congested traffic to expensive hotel rates so book your room well in advance and prepare to share the road. There is plenty of good news, though. Winter temperatures are gorgeous – usually between 60 and 80 degrees – making it a great time to explore nature preserves and parks. There are also plenty of events to enjoy like the Riverboat Regatta, ArtSlam, and St. Patrick's Day Bash.

I live in Bradenton and rented the condo for NY guests. The city is super easy to navigate, beaches are nearby. If you need more excitement, Sarasota (south of Bradenton) or Tampa (north) are within an hours drive.
