Beautiful paved path going from Twin Dolphin Marina all the way over to Highway 301. There is a skate park along the way with several other attractions all following the Manatee River. The city of Bradenton did a fantastic job.

This is one of Bradenton's gems. There is a free skatepark, and wonderful playground with water features, and plenty of events and festivals. I love taking a walk after dinner downtown with the family.
