Support Local Bradenton

Are you ready to discover Bradenton in a whole new way?

Our new website has launched, our business listings are growing, and we can’t wait for you to experience everything it can do!

Let’s start with the basics: searching for listings, discovering deals and discounts, and finding things to do. Once you’re familiar with how our site works, you’ll be ready to explore some advanced features we know you’ll love!

Search for Business Listings

Looking for a reputable plumber to fix that leaky faucet? Want to find a great seafood restaurant on the waterfront?
How about some new art galleries to explore?

You can find all this and more by searching our business listings!

There are three simple ways to do this:

  1. Search by business name or type – simply type in what you’re looking for and we’ll do the rest! Doing your search on a mobile device? Narrow down your results even further by selecting “Near My Location” before you search.

2. Search by neighborhood – we’ve made things even easier by categorizing each listing by location. Choose from East Bradenton, West Bradenton, The Village of the Arts, the Palmetto/Ellenton area, or Anna Maria Island. From there, you can choose the search category and browse through local listings.

3. Search by category – this option is perfect for when you want to see all of your options and aren’t concerned about location. Scroll down our page and select the category you’re interested in, then browse all of our current listings.

Discover Deals and Discounts

Everybody likes to save some money, so we’ve made that easy too! Many of the businesses listed on Discover Bradenton have offered exclusive deals and discounts.

To find them, click on “Deals and Discounts” in the top left corner. From here, you can either scroll through all of the local area offers or narrow down your search results by business type, business name, and/or your current location.

Find Things to Do

Looking for fun things to do in Bradenton and the surrounding area? Head over to Discover Bradenton and click “Search Events.” From here, you can scroll through the most recent event listings, choose a specific type of event (ex. workshops), look for events near your current location, and filter by time (ex. upcoming, this weekend, next month, etc.), and more!

    Is there a cost to this publication? There is a login so I assume so.

      Hi Cinde,

      Thanks for your interest. There are actually several answers to your question, so please bear with me.

      1. There is NO COST to use Discover Bradenton as a front-end user. You can use all of the search features, explore deals and discounts, check out the events calendar, and read blog posts without registering or logging in. There are also advanced features, like saving your favorites, creating lists, leaving reviews, and more. These are still free but you’ll want to register/login so you can use them.

      2. If you’re a business owner and you want to join as a member there is a cost. We have very reasonable monthly membership options that come with a ton of great benefits. You can learn more by visiting

      3. We also offer a FREE LISTING for all local business owners (Bradenton, Palmetto/Ellenton, and Anna Maria Island). To take advantage of this, just visit and scroll all the way down to the very bottom of the page.

      Hope this helps! Feel free to email with any other questions. Have a great day!
