Condé Nast Traveler—Anna Maria Island: One of the Top 30 Islands in the World

Condé Nast Traveler has their 30 Top Islands in the World and Anna Maria Island is number 26 on the list. VisitFlorida did a story about this on their tourism site:
     This stretch sand home to the island's three cities – Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria. And all three cities provide access to great beaches, waterfront hotels, rustic rental cottages, seafood restaurants, eclectic boutiques and outdoor activities.
     Go for a stroll along the beach, dine in one of the excellent waterfront restaurants and listen to live music by the pier. There's a free trolley that will take you anywhere you want to go on the island.
     The beach is a great place to spend the entire day splashing in the waves and playing in the sand. And be sure to pack a picnic lunch like a local. Stop by one of the beachside shops like Olive Oil Outpost to get all stocked up on homemade bread, artisanal cheeses and international wine.
For your friends and family up north here is the Lake Worth VisitFlorida site. This is their write-up about the Lake Worth BEACH!:
There's a lot going on at that 1,200 foot long BEACH!
