Located in Manatee and Sarasota Counties on Florida's central west coast, the barrier island of Longboat Key is near the cities of Bradenton and Sarasota and is not far from St. Armands Key and Lido Key. For centuries, it was a leisure-time destination for the Timucuan and Caloosa Native American tribes. More settlers began arriving in the late 1890s and early 1900s. More from this guide...
