My wife is from Bradenton so wanted me to come with her to the Riverfront. It was great. Lots of colorful signage detailing Bradenton's history. We passed sand volleyball courts, the marina, a skate park, and some amphitheaters. Lots to do.

Then this is THE place for you. You can see the beautiful river, and who knows.... maybe even a manatee! There's even a skate park for those interested in seeing some tricks.

Really nicely done and a great place to walk in the summer since there’s usually a breeze from the river/gulf. Just lovely!

Bradenton has made some effort to improve the downtown experience by investing in a walk along the riverside. The bottom line though is though is that the walk is pretty boring. I wouldn’t make too much effort to repeat the experience. There are much better...More

Bradenton is revitalizing the downtown area and this lovely walk is part of the transformation. There are a few restaurants along the way and at times musical performances at a small amphitheater. There's also a playground for the younger kids. It's a lovely thing to...More

If you’re facing the restaurant, you would go right and continue under the overpass. You will then be on the river walk.

Riverwalk is a 24 hour treat, well-lit at night. Of course, the sidewalk attractions and views are much better by day.
