Show 491, September 17, 2022: Kolby Gayson, Marketing & Communications Director, Bradenton, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key Convention & Visitors Bureau

Kolby Gayson of the Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key CVB

“Anna Maria Island is a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful turquoise waters and white sandy beaches are the main attraction here. The Island is 7 miles long and Beach access is available on both the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay. The Island has a rustic “Old Florida” fishing pier: Rod n’ Reel Pier, popular to visitors and anglers alike.” 

“There’s an important fact to learn about the 7 miles of beach Anna Maria Island offers up: not all beaches are created equal. Some are great for just sitting; others beckon you to explore your adventurous side. And, of course, there are several in between. Five of the area’s beaches are Blue Wave Certified and declared eco-friendly by the Clean Beach Council in Washington D.C., so you can feel good about hanging out there, too.”

You won’t find a building over 3 stories high on Anna Maria Island or any chain, franchised restaurants. 

Joining us to represent the area is Kolby Gayson, the Marketing and Communications Director for the Bradenton, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key Convention and Visitors Bureau.
