New Resident Information

Getting Settled in Manatee County

Bridge Street Pier

One of the first priorities of all new residents is to find out more about the area in which you will be living. The Manatee Chamber of Commerce can help, providing information on the South Tampa Bay Region as well as more specific data on registering a motor vehicle, obtaining a driver's license, public school registration and more.

If you're looking to purchase goods and services, we encourage you to visit our Preferred Business Directory. This directory of Manatee Chamber Members provides you with a listing of businesses that have made an investment in our area. Their support is invaluable to Manatee County.

Another great shopping aid is the LocalQuotes4U Tool. This online service enables you to receive multiple bids on the products or services you need, all while ensuring you buy local. Use it for home or business to save time and money!
