BRADENTON -- Folks who scream for ice cream on Riverwalk can soon dip into a new shop at Twin Dolphin Marina.

Corwin's Ice Cream and Smoothies is working to open Feb. 15 inside the marina, 1000 First Ave. W, under the direction of Pier 22 General Manager and Executive Chef Greg Campbell.

Campbell, who also helps operate Twin Dolphin Marina, noticed a need for people walking along the Riverwalk to stop for a soda or water and ice cream. And he thinks the former convenience store space is perfect.

"We really feel there's a need on the Riverwalk to give people a destination on their walk," Campbell said.

Eat like a local during Bradenton Area River Regatta.

There are a bunch of reasons to attend Saturday’s Bradenton Area River Regatta. And as someone who spends a whole lot of time dining in downtown Bradenton, let me offer some suggestions on where and what to eat within walking distance of the Manatee River. Because, really, you can do better than just a bland burger from a random vendor.

Pier 22: Downtown Bradenton’s sole waterfront restaurant has something for everyone including a full sushi menu featuring my current fave: the South of the Border roll (yellowtail tuna, togarashi, lime aioli, all “super crunched”). Also, don’t miss ...

Play: Bradenton Riverwalk at sunset

Herald-Tribune - Sept 3 2015

My wife’s a walker now — 3 to 5 miles a day — so on Saturday evening we headed out to Bradenton’s Riverwalk.

At the last minute, we decided to ride our bikes.

Call it cross-training.

And it was perfect.

Perfect timing. Perfect weather after a thunderstorm. Perfect sunset along the Manatee River.

I tried to take the perfect photo at the Riverwalk Skatepark, but couldn’t manage to capture the scene. You’ll have to trust me — it was glorious.

And this Riverwalk is Bradenton at its best.

Sarasota snobs, take note: We have nothing like this riverfront trail that links parks and recreation with marina restaurants and downtown bars a...

Upscale cuisine, happy hour deals and more along Manatee River

If you’re one of the thousands of people attending Bradenton Blues Festival Weekend, then you probably plan on dining or drinking along the Riverwalk, where events take place Friday through Sunday.

Of course, the 1.5-mile park overlooking Manatee River is a great destination year-round with its family fun zone and splash park, beach volleyball, skate park, fishing pier and other attractions such as the comfy outdoor living rooms.

Mostly, Riverwalk is a fabulous place for a fun walk and every good walk deserves a good meal, or good dessert, or good drink(s).

Here’s where to treat yourself.

Bradenton Area River Regatta preps in full-swing





BRADENTON/PALMETTO (FOX 13) - The sound is unmistakable. For the fourth year, Formula 2 boats and speeding jet skis will take center stage at the Bradenton Area River Regatta.


"It's kind of unique that they can watch from the top of the bridge and we are right there," said Eric Lagopoulos.


Jet Ski racer Eric Lagopoulos said the only thing louder than the boats are the fans.


"We can actually hear them from the bridges," he said.


He hopes to bring home first place this year. But the cities of Bradenton and Palmetto expect to be the biggest winners.


"We are looking to break all records of attendance," said Mayor Wayne Poston.
