Welcome to Bradenton's Best
Bradenton is a unique place. We live, shop, eat, and play in Florida’s beautiful Manatee County and we wouldn’t have it any other way. In celebration of our great communities, Bradenton Herald presents Bradenton’s Best.
In 2023, we had over 1,800 businesses, organizations, and individuals competing to be named in the top three spots of 231 categories. We received 212,000 votes awarding 540 businesses! This contest is truly designed to engage the community in celebrating the places, restaurants, and local businesses we love.
