Things to Do on Anna Maria Island in the Summer
Locals and summer vacationers come to AMI to enjoy cooling off in the warm Gulf of Mexico and find gorgeous sunsets during the hottest days and rainy afternoons of the year.
Memorial Day Weekend kicks off the summer fun, the 4th of July is a busy time, with lots of visitors as well. Check out the events page on the AMI Privateeers page for information on the annual Independence Day Parade held each year on July 4.
Wrapping up summer is Labor Day weekend, where families come to enjoy the last days of summer before heading back to school.
Other than the annual Independence Day Parade, no other big events are held during the summer. Besides visitors just enjoying the beach, shopping and restaurants will likely be the big draw.
