Fall In Love With Venice, Florida

Venice is tucked away 23 miles south of Sarasota in Southwest Florida. Voted one of the Top 10 Happiest Seaside Towns 2015 by Coastal Living and In June Venice was named the second-most livable city in Florida by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Venice was mainly settled in 1870s, the City of Venice was incorporated in 1927. Drive around and you’ll still see homes and businesses featuring Italian-style architecture, modern storm-ready homes and pleasing seaside villas. Lots of new homes being built everywhere.

It’s known for Venice Beach, with its offshore coral reef, and Caspersen Beach, where fossil shark teeth are often found, but there is so much more.

Having been listed in many circles as the “Shark’s Tooth Capital of the World”, Venice holds an annual shark’s tooth festival to commemorate the abundance of shark’s teeth (some of which are known to be thousands of years old) that can be found in the area. Teeth can be found by walking the beach and sifting through the sand, although the best results are had by snorkeling or diving off shore.

Venice has:

  • a thriving arts district, with the largest community theater in the country,
  • an enchanting downtown
  • long stretches of beautiful coastline
  • lots of activities to keep you entertained

Discover unique boutiques, souvenir shops, restaurants and ice cream parlors with an easy walk thorough downtown Venice. Drive the meandering shore-line drive enjoying the scenic views. Walk or bike the Legacy Trail. Shop at some of the best local stores along US41.

Love For The Outdoors

Naturalists will find lots of ways to connect with nature, whether it’s bird watching, wildlife viewing, or identifying plants. With its tropical breezes, beautiful beaches, and endless activities, the Venice area offers non-stop ways to enjoy the outdoors. Jump from deep-sea fishing to scuba diving to hiking to biking to kayaking.
