Both beaches are very nice, but I prefer Anna Maria because it's more laid back and still has that "Old Florida" vibe.

This ^^. I live down here in the area, and to me, Anna Maria and its beaches are as good as it gets. Low-scale, laid back, old Florida at its best. With many restaurants on the water (Siesta has NONE). Siesta is an uber-crowded party beach, and for me it is vastly overrated. Way too crowded.

Anna Maria is DEFINITELY worth the drive!

My husband and I just visited Anna Maria Island about a month ago and it's one of my new favorite places in the world. It had such a happy, laid back feel.

Honeymoon and Fort De Soto were incredible, too. I bawled my eyes out at Fort De Soto, quite honestly, because I saw the largest pod of dolphins I've ever seen. I was a sniveling bawl baby and I didn't even care who knew it.
