Hey everyone! I am coming down to Bradenton in March for Pirates Spring Training. I am staying out on 14th St about 5 miles from the field. Its about 2.5 miles from the airport. Is this a decent area to walk to restaurants and all or am I in danger. It sounds liek everyone is talking very bad about the city and now I fear Im in danger, but the hotel assured em this is a decent area to walk and all and that nighs arent too bad. Please give me info on where to go and not to go. I will be taxi'ing around but planned on walking when im not doing that. Thanks!

If you tell me the name of your hotel/motel, I'll let you know....depending on what you consider safe....I'd not ever "walk" down 41 in Bradenton for any amount of distance.....you could be mistaken for a tourist

PM me if you'd like...

I caught your other post. I would maybe look into staying in another area. You don't need to be close to the park. It's not an area that would be too safe. It's not dangerous so much, just not the safest. There are many nice places in Bradenton. There is hotel on about 51st & Cortez, a holiday inn express I think. Its about halfway between the park and the beaches. I would make sure you hit the coast while your here.. there are some great places to eat down that way (Banana Cabana, Mr Bones). Not to mention some great things to see on Anna Maria Island..
