Our Story...

 Desoto Towers


Looking for a new place to call Home?  If you are 62 or older and are longing for tranquility along with social connectedness, Desoto Towers is your Bradenton destination.  The original conceptualization for the Towers permeated every aspect of its design in 1970, showcasing the beauty of Ware's Creek and affordability for fixed incomes, matched with  attractive apartment floor plans.  Those same features have been maintained and are appreciated by over 230 residents living in our 12 story building for seniors today.



CELEBRATIONS—Desoto Towers puts on five annual functions to celebrate the holidays:  Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Fourth of July and the Nineties Birthday Party for residents over 90.  Our Veterans are commemorated on Veterans' Day with a special ceremony as well.  

BINGO, SCHEDULED CARDS AND GAMES NIGHTS,  LUNCH BUNCH, ICE CREAM SOCIALS, and MOVIE NIGHTS held in our newly renovated auditorium are just some of the resident run activities.  Something for everyone!

And OLD MAIN STREET, Bradenton has all of the nightlife that you could want within walking distance plus Saturday morning Farmers' Market.

PET POLICYDesoto Towers loves our furry pet population.  We have made great efforts for pet lovers  to enjoy their tenancy at Desoto Towers.  Dogs and Cats weighing 20 pounds or less are welcome at Desoto Towers, with the proper vaccinations and a refundable deposit of $300.  Be sure to ask for a pet policy handbook/ application.


Whether coming from the north or the south, turn west on Manatee or Hwy 64 and turn left on 15th Street West. Desoto Towers is on that corner, back off the street on the right. Call today to schedule a tour and review the application process with our Leasing Manager:
