Just relocated to the Bradenton/Ellenton area and trying to explore and get a feel for the area.

Beach wise; we've been to Treasure Isle and St Pete. It was a nice experience. Anna Maria beach is also close but haven't checked that out as of yet.

My 21 year old son will be visiting me for a short 3 day visit.

We're both into Rock/Concerts but I didn't see anything interesting scheduled in the Tampa area over the next few months. Any suggestions on what I could show him or do with him during this short stay, with at least 1 beach day planned?

Tampa does not get a lot of the big rock/pop acts; usually they go to Orlando or Miami. So if you see a show scheduled for Tampa, make sure you go. because you may not get another chance!

if you are into music, South Florida has a lot of famous recording studios where big albums were made

you should check out the rock memorabilia at the Hard Rock Casino

Anna Maria is in fact very nice, so are Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Mount Dora, Plant City

Thanks Sinatras!

Maybe we'll check out Anna Maria this time instead of St Pete.

I know there must be a ton of things to do but anything that I must/see do for the other 2 days of his visit? Just trying to line up some ideas..

Hey! Congrats on the move!

There are a few pretty cool venues around that get some good acts. Try Jannus Live or the Mahaffey theater in St Pete, or Crowbar or the ritz Ybor in Tampa. Not sure what style of music ya'll are into, but I think there will probably be something you can find. Try this: https://www.vividseats.com/region/ta...t-tickets.html

The Dali museum is pretty fun. There are some cool coffee/tea shops in the area if he is into that scene. Breweries as well.

Siesta Key is beautiful also.

I think he will really find a lot to like if he visits.

When is he coming? Check out Strawberry Festival and Florida State Fair, both are coming up (check out the musical acts for both of those). Gasparilla Parade also.
