We have lived in Bradenton for 14 years. We love this area, the schools are al rated A, have wonderful golf courses. There are plenty of good paying jobs. We have everything in our area within 5 minutes of our home, hospital, movie theater, colleges, schools, 5 grocery stores and so on. We have lived in New Jersey prior to moving to Florida, and this was the best move. We have a lot of friends that have moved from all over the Country, and they all say this is the best area to raise a family. I guarantee when you vacation in our area, you too will want to relocate here, oh did I mention we have some of the nicest beaches in the nation, Siesta Key. Tricia

I have lived in the Bradenton area since the mid 80's where are you seeing the good paying jobs? Now i will agree with you on the grocery stores they are everywhere. I havent seen the A rated schools but if you can give me one i will believe you. I know the high schools are over crowded drug filled and under funded. As for the mall if you r talking about Desoto which thats the only one its horrible dont let your kids go there at nightits gang infested the theatre actually smells. Everyone around here knows Bradenton is a high crime area East Bradenton i wouldnt let my dog walk there and West Bradenton you have to move all the way to Palma Sola to get in a decent area and the crime now at the beaches is horrible. Cochina and Anna Maria are getting bad. shootings every year...By the way siesta is in Sarasota county outlaws people to be homeless there why do you think they all come to Bradenton....I will give you credit i like siesta but Bradenton really does suck.
