This is one of the best places to eat, drink and hang out on the island, any time day or night. A go-to place for lunch or dinner, with a great menu and reasonable prices. We have never had a bad meal there! And its...More

No lines waiting at restaurants and very few people riding the trolley. I was told the wait for a table during busy season can be up to two hours. Also no problem finding a parking spot. Stayed three nights at a hotel on Bridge Street...More

The beach is well kept, monitored by law enforcement, with fishing piers. Parking on side of road...which is very busy...is as adequate as geographic space allows. Spring break is just too busy a time to visit the beaches. Traffic is awful!

Lots of parking. Beautiful white sandy beaches. Nice walking/running path adjacent to the beach. Fun shops and restaurants on Bridge Street.

White sandy beach! Not a whole lot of shopping on the beach. Can rent beach chairs if needed. The water is clear!

It was my kids’ first beach vacation. We went to Lido Beach day one, Bradenton Beach day two, and Siesta Key day three. They enjoyed Bradenton the most. Lido sand was pretty rough, Siesta Key’s sand was too fine and was a good quarter mile...More

The beach itself Is not particularly busy but does depend on the time of the year. Holmes Beach is the same - depends on the time of year. I have been there in different months and have never found it busy.
