To offset the serious impact of Red Tide for Anna Maria Island businesses the “Live like a Tourist” Campaign might just be the answer. If you think about it we all are tourists somewhere. The question is how far do you have to be away from your house to stop being a local. Manatee County residents are being called “day trippers” when they visit the beach. Does this mean I am a tourist if I have to take a short drive over the bridge to the island? Also, how long do I have to be living in one place to become a local? In any regard, we all here at Team Duncan have a strong island connection and recognize the significant challenges for our fellow island businesses. We consider ourselves locals and can tell you the best spot to take the perfect beach picture, how and when to avoid traffic, where to get the best lunch sandwich or where to go fishing.
However, now is the time to support our neighbors and “live like a tourist”. Darcie Duncan, the Chairman of the Manatee Chamber of Commerce and owner of Duncan Real Estate, encourages “everybody to think local. Let our wide circles of friends and families know that Anna Maria Island and all of Manatee County are open for business”.
The Waterfront Restaurant offers 25% off your bill if you mention their social media posting. The Sandbar Restaurant, BeachHouse or Marvista have $10 off coupons if you spend $30.
