Planning a move or vacation to Anna Maria Island?  Here's some ideas for things to do on this old Florida barrier Island on the Gulf of Mexico. 1.  Park the car and walk, bike or take the free island trolley around.  You can also take the Monkey Bus! The monkey bus is a service that will take you around the island for tips.  There's even a karaoke machine on there for added fun. 2.  Go to the beach.  There is public beach access all over the island.  3.  Build sandcastles or sand sculptures.   If you dig holes, please fill them in before you leave the beach.  They can be dangerous for people walking on the beach at night.  During Turtle Season May through October, the sea turtles can get stuck in as they make their way to the water, making them easy prey for the birds. 4.  Collect seash...

Yoga on the beach on Anna Maria Island -  I had a great experience of doing yoga on the beach this morning.  You can drop by for classes on Saturdays and Sundays at 8:30 a.m. right at the beach access on the Gulf of Mexico side of Pine Ave in Anna Maria.  Reservations aren't required and donations are accepted.  The class is for all levels. There are 4 instructors that rotate through the schedule each month. Bring your water and a sheet or over sized towel to sit on.  It's a great way to start the day feeling refreshed.   If you're enjoying the island lifestyle and want to talk about buying your vacation home on Anna Maria Island or taking the plunge and living here full time, call me Jen Bowman, Broker Associate with Keller Williams Realty on the Water 941-840-0117.

A Hamburger steeped in atmosphere and history…..   When I moved to Sarasota in 1984 one of the first places I was introduced to by the locals was a hamburger joint called “Duffy’s Tavern.” It was right across the street from the Manatee Public beach in a little shack with no air-conditioning and a few tables.  The hamburgers were cooked in front of you, piled with grilled onions and served with icy cold mugs of beer to keep you cool.  Sitting next to locals and tourists alike, it was easy to start up conversations and learn about the history of Duffy’s as well as that of the island.  I made the trip from Longboat Key every month during the cooler seasons and let the summers count me as missing in action because the heat was just too much.  Then, in 2003, Duffy’s moved to a new location...

A lot has changed since you bought your Anna Maria home. Home values have tanked, unemployment has spiked and homeownership has taken a turn for the worse. Millions feel stuck in a home they can’t afford to sell because they owe more on their mortgage than the home is worth. And for many, the mortgage payment is no longer manageable, so they are slipping farther and farther behind every month. At the same time, scam artists are coming up with new schemes to take advantage of Anna Maria homeowners who are down on their luck. As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) my mission is to help Anna Maria homeowners to steer clear of scams and figure out the best option based on their circumstances.  The fact is, no one wants to see you foreclose on your home, and more help is available ...
