If you’ve ever escaped to Anna Maria Island for the winter holidays, you know how magical it can be. Whether you’re escaping inclement weather back home or just coming to relax by the shore, sugary white sand beaches and stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico await you. Our weather falls in the tame range of the low 70s, allowing you to soak up the fresh air outdoors through activities like bicycling the island, having lunch with an ocean view, and taking sunset walks on the beach. And you won’t have to worry about missing out on the Christmas cheer either, because we’ve compiled a list of the best Christmas activities and events on Anna Maria Island!
Visit the Big Tree in Bradenton Beach
At the southern end of the island, you’ll find the town of Bradenton Beach, which celebrates each year by putting up a 25-foot Christmas tree in the Historic Bridge Street District. The lighting typically kicks off before Thanksgiving, but if you’re visiting any time after that for the holidays, you’ll still be able to admire its twinkling lights and grab a holiday photo or two. There are several restaurants within walking distance, making it the perfect activity after a dinner with family or friends. It also gives you the chance to explore the Bridge Street area, which is one of the most popular neighborhoods on AMI!
Holiday Festival and Boat Parade
The boat parade annual event that comes to AMI every December, taking place in Bradenton Beach. This is a treasured local Christmas tradition, and a festive evening out with family and friends. Marvel at the boats decorated with glittering Christmas lights, watching them drift by along with their shimmering reflection on the water. Nearby restaurants offer food and drink specials for the event, which typically starts at 6 p.m. The parade usually takes place at the beginning of December, with this year’s parade scheduled for December 3rd, 2022. If you’re visiting during this time, this unique Christmas event is not to be missed!
Visit a Local Farmers Market on AMI
We have several farmers markets on the island, and it’s the ideal weather for experiencing them, especially compared to the heat of earlier months! In Bradenton Beach you can find the Bridge Street Market, which operates from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday from November to April. Down a bit further south, you can browse the Coquina Beach Market, which takes place on Sundays and Wednesdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each market features an array of local vendors selling fresh produce and handcrafted goods such as art, jewelry, and home goods. Pick up the missing ingredient for your special Christmas dish and grab a bite to eat for lunch as you walk through the market. It’s a great way to get a taste of the local life around the holidays!
Enjoy an Outdoor Movie for Christmas on Bridge Street
This event is an ideal outing if you’re visiting before Christmas, as it usually takes place the week before the holiday. Before the screening of the movie, you can watch the Crowsley Carolers preform in Christmas costumes, and kids can make crafts while they enjoy the show. The movies are family friendly, such as this year’s movie, Home Sweet Home Alone. This year’s Christmas on Bridge Street takes place on December 17th, 2022 from 3:00 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Dine Oceanside for Your Christmas Vacation Meals
Take advantage of the mild temperatures and dine oceanside for the requisite Christmas Eve dinner before preparing your own holiday meal. We have several restaurants with spectacular ocean views, such as The Sandbar Restaurant where you can dine right near the sand and snack on casual dishes with a gourmet twist. Or dine right on the water at Rod and Reel Pier, admiring the scenery of Tampa Bay. Another great idea is to pre-order your Christmas meal from a local grocery store or restaurant—Anna Maria Island Beach Café offers pre-orders for takeaway, and you can heat them up back home in your vacation rental!

Summer is obviously known for intensely high temperatures in most parts of the world, but if you’re looking to escape to somewhere a bit cooler during the hot months, Anna Maria Island is a prime location. There are miles of gorgeous beaches for you to visit, and the cool breeze coming in off the coast will help make even the hottest of summer days much more bearable. While you’re at it, you’ll even be able to go for a swim if you really want to cool off. If you’re planning on visiting fairly late into the summer, you’ll also find that the island is less busy than during the peak months of the spring, and who doesn’t enjoy beating the crowds?
We have a variety of different vacation rentals available with all different kinds of amenities, ensuring that you’ll be able to find the perfect spot to make the most of your summer trip in. Since the island is mostly untouched and fairly small, you’ll always be in a prime location to see all of the best sights on the island, and you’re never too far from one of the wonderful restaurants in town if you’re looking to go out for a meal. All you have to do is pick your favorite part and start planning.
Booking in Advance Saves Money
Getting started as soon as possible when it comes to booking your summer vacation will make sure you get the most value out of your stay. It is usually very likely that, the closer you get to vacation time, the less likely you are to score those great deals. When you book in advance, you’ll be able to help make sure that you secure the best rates in town, all while avoiding paying any of those pesky last-minute fees. It also helps that, the earlier you start your booking, the more likely you are to get the home you really want. Without all of the extra competition, you won’t have to worry about making concessions on your favorite amenities just to make sure you have lodging. Even though summer might slow down a bit on Anna Maria Island, you can be sure someone else is also looking for that perfect beach house.
Avoiding all of the extra expenses will help make sure you can spend your money doing the things you’d rather be doing. After all, you’ve been budgeting and saving to make sure you can afford this trip at just the right time for you, so why wait until the last minute and eat up your vacation budget? Keeping the rental cost low will help keep money in your pocket, making sure you can enjoy a fine meal with your favorite people or pick up that perfect gift you just can’t leave without. Don’t let the necessities get in the way of your summer trip.
Take the Extra Time to Plan Your Trip
Taking the chances to escape the daily grind is something we all look forward to doing, especially since that extra bit of rest and relaxation can help put it all in perspective. Getting out of town can be therapeutic, letting you escape all of the chores around the house that might need doing even on your off days so that you can truly relax. Putting your vacation together is part of that experience, too, and you’ll want to make sure you aren’t putting yourself in a stressful situation while you’re planning something that’s supposed to be fun. Putting in that extra work in advance will help make sure you can avoid the unnecessary crunch, which will help your vacation have a clear plan before you even leave town.

Look Forward to Your Upcoming Vacation
Your upcoming vacation is the perfect chance for you to escape all of the stress of daily life, and you can help make the most of it by avoiding that extra stress in the long run.

Endless Ways to Adventure Around the Island
Maybe you and your partner are fans of long beach-to-beach walks, or love to cruise coastal roads and discover the area by convertible—whatever your style, you’ll find there’s a multitude of ways to soak up the island’s tropical landscape and familiarize yourself with all the popular spots. We suggest renting a bike from a local shop and taking a day to ride along the coast and discover the quaint back streets of the island, from Anna Maria down to Bradenton Beach—you’ll notice right away that it’s a favorite pastime of locals and visitors alike! If you want to discover the area from the sea, reserving a snorkeling tour is always a great idea, and many local companies are willing to do private excursions for two! For the ultimate romantic experience, book a surprise sunset dinner cruise, where you can drink in one another’s presence with a fine-cooked meal amongst a gorgeous backdrop of the Sarasota Bay.
Pamper Yourself with a Couple’s Spa Treatment
From couple’s massages to dual pedicure treatments, you’ll find no shortage of ways to pamper yourself when you’re on your romantic Anna Maria Island vacation. Stretching down from Anna Maria to Bradenton Beach, you’ll find a selection of spa and wellness centers dotted along the way, offering everything from organic facials to couple’s massages in private huts on the beach. Of course, you can always create your own luxurious spa day at your private vacation rental, as some of our properties offer spa-like bathrooms with oversized tubs. With upscale perks like private pools, your own personal jacuzzi, and gorgeous outdoor areas, it’s easy to feel like you’re at a resort for the day when you’re just spending time at your vacation rental!
Indulge in Top-Tier Seaside Dining
If you’re searching for a restaurant with a romantic ambiance, you’re in luck, because Anna Maria Island has several spots that fit the bill, along with quaint casual lunch joints that boast upscale menus of freshly caught seafood. For a quick daytime affair stop by the Rod and Reel Pier, where the restaurant is situated at the end of the pier and almost entirely surrounded by a shimmering blanket of turquoise water. They also offer a breakfast menu for the early birds, and amongst the waves it can be a lovely way to kick off the day. For inspired beachside dining, be sure to make reservations at the Beach House Restaurant down in Bradenton Beach, where you can dine on the sand on their patio, and feast on the fruits of the sea. If you need a low-key idea that doesn’t sacrifice on a beautiful yet intimate setting, pack a gourmet picnic lunch to enjoy at a secluded beach spot!
Beachy Rentals Made for a Romantic Getaway
There’s no question that the highlight of the island is our array of amazing beaches, from the northern tip of Bean Point all the way to the end of Coquina Beach—both on the gulf, and bay side! Many of our Anna Maria Island vacation rentals put you within quick access of all the best beach spots, whether it’s a quick walk or an effortless drive. In-between relishing the breezy weather and warm sunshine, you can drink in the bliss of your vacation right at your rental, taking advantage of all the great perks and amenities.

Anna Maria Island is definitely a fairly well-kept secret. If you want to get a taste of the island life while enjoying some of the most well-preserved locations off the Florida coast, you’d be hard pressed to find a better location to book your upcoming vacation in. Regulations are pretty strict when it comes to the type of businesses that are allowed to be constructed, leaving the island in a beautiful state where you can get all of the necessities without all of the trappings of living in a big city.
If you’re planning a trip out to Anna Maria Island and you want some high quality, private space to enjoy during your trip, this Anna Maria Island vacation home has everything you need to help make your trip a special one. All of the necessary amenities are here, and you’ll find there’s plenty of in-home entertainment on top of that for those nights that you’d rather stay in and enjoy your private space.
Island Dream is an ideal space for a trip if you’re planning on bringing along a modestly sized group or family. The home has three bedrooms and plenty of extra space for everybody to make use of during their stay and is in a prime location for people who enjoy heading out to the beach. Not only is the beach just a short walk away, but all of the great restaurants and shopping of Holmes Beach are also within walking distance of this wonderful property. Extra travel can be a hassle after you’ve already gone through the effort of making your way to the island, so having everything be fairly close together is a great way to make the most of your time off.
Once you’re inside, you’ll immediately realize how cozy this home is. All of the colors and decorations match the laid-back island life, and there’s plenty of comfortable furniture around the house to help make sure that everyone staying there has somewhere to relax at all times. Wooden flooring and cabinetry also give the home some extra life and help to bring a refined touch that you’re sure to enjoy.
If you’re planning on spending some time at home rather than getting out and spending all of your time at the beach or in town, the living room is fully equipped for everything your group will need for a lovely night in. Cozy couches are situated around a coffee table, so you can bring along a snack or drink to enjoy while you’re relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet. If you enjoy putting on some TV while you’re at home, the flatscreen TV is in a prime viewing location so you can put on all of your favorite movies or shows. Thanks to the included high-speed internet, you won’t have to worry about chewing through your date while you’re in town, either.
As part of the same, wide-open space as the living room, anyone doing some cooking in the kitchen will still be able to enjoy the good company while keeping everyone well fed. Having a high-quality kitchen is important for any stay, as well, so we’ve made sure Island Dream is equipped with a fully furnished kitchen that sports all of the appliances you could ever need to put together a wonderful meal. The central island makes for the perfect space to put out some plates for serving, too, so feel free to cook up a few of your favorite dishes and have everyone choose whatever they like.
One of the other biggest fixtures in the home is absolutely the outdoor pool area. No matter which season you’re planning on visiting, the pool will be ready for you. Feel free to use this heated beauty to your heart’s content, and if you’d rather lounge instead of swim, you also have your very own hot tub right beside it.
This rental is also pet friendly, because we know how important it is for a lot of people to be able to bring along the family pet. If you’d like to bring them along, just be sure to let us know so we can make the proper arrangements for your stay.
If you’re planning on staying for a while, or you just didn’t pack quite enough, you’ll be happy to know that this property also comes with an in-home washer and dryer. Don’t worry about having to hunt down a laundromat in town just to keep your clothes clean.
