Personal Injury law office in Bradenton, Florida
Bradenton, Florida is a "twin city" with Sarasota, but has a far-different feel. While Sarasota is a shining bastion of high society, Bradenton is a working town, dominated by corporate citizens like Tropicana, Champs Sporting Goods and Beall's Department Stores, all headquartered here.
Bradenton is very similar geographically to Sarasota, but it has a distinctly "old Florida" feel. Old Main Street is a throwback to a slower and gentler time, and is only a few steps from the riverfront marina and the Manatee Players Theater.
Manatee County's barrier islands feel like a tropical hideaway. Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key are across the Intracoastal Waterway from Bradenton, and the village of Cortez is a throwback to the Olde Florida fishing villages of the 1930's and 1940's.
A more recent development is the development of Lakewood Ranch, at the east side of Bradenton. It is a mammoth planned community, with all types of housing, as well as shopping, dining and entertainment centers, and a mall which is set to open in autumn, 2014. Its parks, trails and recreational facilities make Lakewood Ranch a very attractive destination for new arrivals in the Bradenton area.
There is no doubt that Manatee County is a hidden gem of Florida's gulf coast. But as we all know, even in paradise, reality can intrude. If that happens, the Hudson Law Office stands by to help.
