Historic Cortez Village offers a look back!

Take a walk through the historic fishing community of Cortez Village and visit the old fish houses. Listen to locals tell the tale of yesteryear fishing in the bays and waterways of the Gulf of Mexico.


The historic Cortez Village is a National Register of Historic Places community that has worked hard to preserve its unique Florida Gulf Coast Heritage by fighting the pressures from modern development that have brought about the loss of much that was old time Florida.This commercial fishing community has opened its own Museum and through exhibits and programs it interprets a unique culture, celebrating the traditional life on the sun-drenched Gulf Coast.


Cortez, on Sarasota Bay in Manatee County, is one of the last remaining fishing villages on Florida's southwest Gulf coast. Easily reached just west of Bradenton, this historic working waterfront is near area beaches, fishing piers and shops. It's also the place to go for jet skiing, kayaking and para-sailing. And don’t miss the Florida Maritime Museum, housed in the restored historic 1912 schoolhouse, itself located on the park-like grounds of the Cortez Nature Preserve. Displayed for your delight, you will find the Banks Shell collection,ship models, historic boats and an enthralling butterfly garden.
