Seriously, I would HIGHLY recommend this marina as "the place to stay" in this area.
There are some wonderfully rustic / earthy as you can get, seafood restaurants right near here (in Cortez) which is the LAST of this kind of fishing villages in all of Florida!

This is a VERY liveaboard friendly marina, with good people all around you.

If you want to experience more of the mariner side of this area and less of the plastic / typical tourist side, then you really want to be in the Cortez / Anna Maria Island neighborhood.

This also positions you very well for Tampa Bay, leading out to the ocean, or going South to Sarasota.
