We are vacationing here at Manasota Key Florida. Rented a small cottage on the water with a boat dock. Anyone have any suggestions for good places to eat, good fishing areas, or anything fun and interesting to do on the water any sand bars. Open to any suggestions anyone might have on this form that has been or lives in or near the area.

My grandparent lived in point o pines. The little peninsula with the split waterway below the McDonald’s. I used to spend a few weeks each summer with them from about 1966-1978. They had a small boat lift on their seawall. I can’t tell you how many crabs and fish we caught when we were kids out of lemon bay. Good times. Thanks for the memory. Have a nice vacation!

Absolutely check out Stump Pass Beach State Park. Beautiful area to anchor on the beach and chill or explore.

Beach Road Wine Bar and Bistro is a cool spot to dock and grab some eats.

There are a lot of great spots in the area, just depends on how far you plan to cruise. For example, Cabbage Key is a private island with rental cottages and public restaurant.

Report back on what you see and do!
