Why you'd want to live in Ellenton
What was once a rural outpost north and east of Bradenton, Ellenton is now as pleasantly rustic as it always was, with just enough big city shopping and other urban conveniences to make it an attractive place to live and work. With easy access to I-75, Ellenton/Parrish is a superb location for those whose daily activities take them to Sarasota, Bradenton, St. Petersburg or Tampa. Ellenton’s waterfront charms and quiet suburban neighborhoods hold much allure to both active families and retirees alike, while the eastern part of the county, which is still very rural, are major attractions for those who love Florida but prefer lush acreage to cityscapes. Centrally located yet serene, Ellenton is an oasis of old-Florida tranquility where you can enjoy rich history and modern day amenities while taking a break from the pace of city life.
