BRADENTON, FLORIDA—A trip here means one thing: sports. This part of Florida is a great place for all sorts of sporting activities, whether you like to participate or watch:
Rowing: When I heard that a new facility had been built in Bradenton for the 2017 World Rowing Championships, it went to the top of my list for my visit, as I am a rower.
At one time, the Nathan Benderson Park, was just a catch-basin pit for road construction. But it’s been transformed into a world-class rowing, dragon boat, kayak and canoe-racing facility.
