Live Local. Work Global.

Have you ever heard the saying, “live where you vacation?” You’ll hear this motto time and time again from the team at Shinn & Co.

Voted the No. 3 city with the “highest well-being” by The Today Show, both Bradenton and Sarasota offer an eclectic blend of culture, fine dining, historic buildings, pristine beaches and of course wide array of shopping opportunities.

Bradenton’s Old Florida history, museums, parks and preserves are always worth exploring – along with its vibrant downtown, RiverWalk and the Village of the Arts – a working artists community. The renowned Robinson Preserve, DeSoto National Memorial Park, the Cortez fishing village and the Manatee Village Historical Park are the perfect getaway for a Sunday afternoon. Plus, Bradenton is a short drive from such Gulf shores as Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach.

In Sarasota, the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art pays homage to the Ringlings, the family behind America’s most famous circus. And the world famous St. Armand’s Circle is available for fine shopping close to the coast.
