This is VeniceLike most sought after Gulf Coast communities, Venice people have a lot of outdoor activities available within reach of its many communities and neighborhoods. Well, the beaches of course where you can discover ancient shark’s teeth, warm water swims, go fishing, boating and naturally enjoy exceptionally beautiful sunsets for starters. However, we are not all beach people and others prefer to golf, play tennis, pickle-ball, or even table tennis. The downtown on Venice Island is quaint and Historic in character with many great restaurants and stores. Active cycling enthusiasts abound with access to the Legacy Trail for safe riding, and running.
Venice Business DirectoryVenice Business Directory is a simple to use guide to the best local business, restaurants, attractions, and things to do. In the short time we’ve been here, we’ve seen so much change, so much development, so many cars and people. The quaint small city feel is being replaced by sprawl and congestion. I have friends that tell me of their early Venice recollections when there was no light on Venice and US41, of farms with lots of cows and of acres of orange groves. We all love the great prices of corporate stores like Walmart, Target, Walgreens and Publix until we realize our small boutique on Venice Ave is closed. We love the convenience of a giant Wawa with its sandwiches, coffee and great gas prices then we notice the cute independent convenience store that’s been there forever is boarded up. We love to impulse buy through Amazon until we notice the cute little gift shop is now vacant. We appreciate the big-name stores but we have to support our local stores. Have you ever gone to a town where the stores on Main Street are boarded up, no local restaurants and the town center is desolate? It’s not a pretty sight. It’s a sad reality that big business is killing small business. We must cherish and support that remnant of the American Dream, owning a small business. That’s why we created Venice Business Directory. We love our local economy and we want the quaintness that attracted so many of us to Venice Florida flourish. We love our cozy restaurants, our friendly shop owners and small business owners. We love our local service providers – mechanics, roofers, plumbers, healthcare professionals and more. Getting things online is great but remember if you spend your money locally more of it remains local, supporting our neighbors and helping our local community. Who We Are We are recent transplants that fell in love with this city. Venice Business Directory is an organization helping small & Medium local business by providing visibility and access to Venice residents and visitors. How We Serve We found a way to help flourish the local community. Venice Business Directory is for businesses seeking to grow their organization with the latest online marketing strategies.
