My Island Summer...

It's the beginning of another island summer! A time of sweltering heat, sandy feet and a lot to look forward to! My Son is looking forward to fun with his friends at The Center and Surf Camp, while I'm looking forward to a few adventures with family and friends! We'll spend some time on the water, and maybe even reel in a big fish! I love that at the end of some of the busiest summer workdays, I can look forward to a late sunset dinner with friends, and for a few hours I'll feel like i'm on vacation! I hope you've got some Anna Maria Island Plans this Summer! Whether it's your getaway or the place you stay, we all live and love this Anna Maria Summer Life!

My Island Summer Bucket List:


Go Fishing or Exploring

Egmont Key Adventures!

A trip to Egmont Key should be on everybody's lifelong bucket list! And it's one of my favorite local adventures!  Egmont key is only accessible by boat. It was home to Fort Dade, a military fort built during the Spanish American War, that remained active through the Civil War.  Part of the ruins have fallen into the sea. You can snorkel among the sunken ruins, visit the lighthouse or just explore the tiny island which is a nature sanctuary that is home countless creatures. Don't miss the chance to see the key's population of gofer tortoises, they are adorable!

Fishing is a big deal around Anna Maria Island and my boys love it! My friends at Egmont key adventures have inshore, nearshore and offshore fishing adventures available!

Play Tennis

at The Center!

Tennis in the heart of paradise! I must keep my skills sharp just in case Roger Federer turns up at my door to request a match! The Center has three surfaced courts. Day passes are available at the Front Desk as well as short- and long-term specials!

 Dinner At

The fresh taste of Summer! I adore the Waterfront Restaurant! This local family owned restaurant features the best cuisine on the Island! It's safe to say I'll have more than a few dinners with friends here this summer!
