Places to go and things to see on Anna Maria Island?

Jump to last reply

Heading to FL this summer, to Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island. No one I know has ever been there. It came up as a "place you might be interested in" on TripAdvisor and it looks like they were right. I have read that it is like "old Florida" and am anxious to get there.

I was hoping that folks out in Fodors-land might have some insight for me. Would love to know the usuals:

- what is there to do? (other than the beach, of course)
- what should we see when we are in the area?
- what would you recommend as far as good restaurants in the area?

We'll have a car, so we're not tied to the island for the whole week. Willing to travel a little bit. Would appreciate any info anyone can give.

Thanks in advance!
