The first settlers of the Bradenton Area were the Timucuan Indians who inhabited the region as early as 1000 A.D. Legend relates that Indians named the Manatee River for the peaceful sea cows – known as Manatees – which still inhabit the area's coastal waterways today.
Downtown Bradenton blends the quaintness of generations past with the energy of a thriving hub where industry and the arts are conducted side by side. Along Old Main Street, visitors to the area experience a selection of specialty shops, restaurants and gift and antique stores.
