Cortez

    Cortez, on Sarasota Bay in Manatee County, is one of the last remaining fishing villages on Florida's southwest Gulf coast. Easily reached just west of Bradenton, the historic working waterfront of Cortez is near area beaches, fishing piers and shops. It's also the place to go for jet skiing, kayaking and parasailing. And don’t miss Cortez's Florida Maritime Museum, housed in the restored historic 1912 schoolhouse, itself located on the park-like grounds of the Cortez Nature Preserve. Displayed for your delight, you will find the Banks Shell collection, ship models, historic boats and an enthralling butterfly garden.
