Not in the mood for a beach day? Not to worry. There is so much to see and do on Anna Maria Island. Spend the day at one of our many art galleries, museums or aquariums in the area. Learn the history of Anna Maria Island or the sea life large or small living in our natural wonder of the Gulf of Mexico. Our unique barrier island is surrounded by nature parks and beautiful naturally landscaped paths. Bring your binoculars, roller blades, walking shoes or your bicycle and enjoy your very own eco-tour! If you are looking for a bit of low key competition then Put-Put golf for the day is a perfect get-a-way. If you work up a sweat playing a little miniature golf then stop off for another treat at one of many ice cream shops.
