Manatee County is a county in the state of Florida. According to the 2010 census by the U.S. Census Bureau there are 322,833 people living in Manatee Country.[1] Manatee County is part of the North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota Metropolitan Statistical Area. Every January, the Manatee County Fair takes place at the fairgrounds.



The area now known as "Manatee County" was inhabited by Native Americans for thousands of years. It may have been the landing site for the De Soto Expedition.

Manatee County was created in 1855. It was named for the Florida manatee (commonly called a "sea cow" though it is distantly related to the elephant), which is endangered and the state's official marine mammal.


According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 892.75 square miles (2,312.2 km2), of which 741.03 square miles (1,919.3 km2) (or 83.01%) is land and 151.72 square miles (393.0 km2) (or 16.99%) is water.[2]
