Bradenton Named One Of The Best Places To Retire

Industry Observer with No longer practicing real estate as of 2008.

In the September-October issue of Where To Retire, Bradenton/Sarasota was named one of eight best places to retire.

Other cities also named were: 

  • Ocala, FL
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • San Diego, CA 
  • Myrtle Beach, SC
  • St. George, Utah
  • Santa Fe, NM
  • Brevard, NC

With so much to do here, this is a great place for people to retire.  Miles and miles of gulf coast beaches, golfing, museums, boating, fishing, theaters, shopping and more!  It's all located here in Bradenton!

In the March Issue of Art Calendar magazine, Bradenton was also named one of the top cities in the country for artists, because of the Village of The Arts.

Ten years go by fast, and these were a turbulent decade in Florida real estate.
