I've lived in the Bradenton area for the past 15 years, what would you like to know?

Two somewhat different places. Bradenton is much more racially mixed, has a larger working class population, some not so nice areas and is about a quarter retiree aged. Palm Harbor is 95% white, has more of a working professional population and is uniformly pretty nice with very little in the way of rundown/bad neighborhoods.

Only in the high class areas are nice. Very rough in parts of Bradenton.

If I were to live in Bradenton, I would only consider the very eastern part. You should look east of that in Lakewood Ranch. Lakewood Ranch is super convenient, safe, extremely well designed/developed and lots of wealthy people here.

Or the western/northwestern part. Close to Anna Maria Island, areas of (mostly) nice single-family homes as well as (mostly over-55) condo communities. DeSoto Park, Robinson Preserve and others for hiking, kayaking, nature-watching. Surrounded by water -- Manatee River, Palma Sola Bay, Sarasota Bay. I love it here.

To the OP, it's "Bradenton", not Brandenton or Bradington. And there is a separate forum for Bradenton/Sarasota/Venice where you may get more information.

Depends on whether they have kids or not. Even living on Anna Maria or in NW Bradenton, it can be a mixed bag for districted public schools. Only living out east will one get very good to great schools at all three levels.

Do families actually raise kids around AMI, Holmes and Longboat? It seems like it's all vacation rentals or retirees - are there more family and residential based areas there?

You are correct - those areas are almost exclusively retirees or vacation rentals. The family area is Lakewood Ranch in east Manatee, far from the beACH.
