What a nice and scenic drive this is. We traveled from St. Pete today in business traffic and it was a breeze!
Talk about lovely. The Sunshine Bridge. Easy toll structure (got your Sun Pass handy) and nice places to turn off:
1. Plentiful Gas Stops
2. Fabulous Discount Malls
3. Clear signage for food choices
I'm looking forward to more folks taking advantage of the bountiful beaches, neighborhoods yet close to Tampa!

I live in Parrish, which is on the north side of the Manatee river, still in Manatee County.
I travel to St Pete and Clearwater, and Tampa airport a lot, sometimes 3 trips a week. It generally takes me 25 minutes to get from River Plantation Community in Parrish to the town center in St. Pete. It takes me 35 minutes to Tampa airport most times during the day. It takes me 1 hour to get to Clearwater beach. And it takes about 45 minutes to get to Tampa downtown.
So if you are working in St. Pete or Tampa and you want to live in Manatee County, Parrish is the place to look for your new residence. I can help with that if you need it. Price ranges vary, many different lot sizes from standard 60x110 in deed restricted communities to small farmsteads to multi acre properties. It is a bedroom suburb still holding onto the rural and quaint feel of country living. Great fishing, good hunting, 25 minutes to Sarasota social amenities and quality entertainment and too many fine restaurants to choose from.
So keep me in mind when you decide to be serious and I am sure i can find you the right place to hang your hat.

It is a short commute of about 20 - 25 minutes from Bradenton to downtown St Pete. Add another 20 minutes from Sarasota. There are a number of great neighborhoods to choose from in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. Please contact me for help in finding the home best suited for you.

The commute to St. Pete would be a breeze, especially from Manatee. Tampa can be a bit more problematic with traffic tieups on the Howard Franking Bridge during the rush hours. There are many communities with great access to I-75 from Bradenton and Sarasota that would also be within easy distances from our beaches and downtowns and these should be explored.

Lots of people live in Manatee County and commute to Tampa and St. Pete. Usually, the best drive is I-275 to downtown St. Pete and downtown Tampa. Traffic usually isn't too bad but if you have a problem with heights or crossing large bridges, the Sunshine Skyway may present a problem. If not, you get to enjoy some really nice views during your commute. Make sure you get a Sun Pass so you don't have to stop and pay the toll each way.
Areas such as Lakewood Ranch and Heritage Harbour are 30 to 40 minutes to downtown St. Pete. Both of these areas have great schools and lots of amenities, with a nice selection of housing in most price ranges and budgets.
I'd be happy to work with you to find the right home for your needs.
