Centrally located and split between Manatee and Sarasota County, Mid Key is the perfect location for those wanting access to both Sarasota and Bradenton. This location is a short drive to St. Armands Circle, Lido Key and downtown Sarasota, as well as Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island. The beaches on Mid Key are less crowded, offering space and solitude for its residents. Residents enjoy proximity to the Shoppes of Bay Isle, which house a pharmacy, nail salon and Publix, the island’s only grocery store.

FUN FACT By the early 1900s, an agricultural community with about 18 households formed a portion of the island now known as Mid Key. Byron Corey acquired a 154-acre tract and in 1907 put his post office there and became the island’s first postmaster. The Mistletoe steamship transported mail between the island and the mainland and also shipped produce from Byron Corey's dock, now known as Corey's Landing, an exclusive enclave of 61 luxury homes and villas where you can find streets named Mistletoe Lane and Byron Lane.
