Venice Island is a charming beach town in southwest Florida, just 10 miles south of Sarasota along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Venice Island is known for its white sand beaches, scattered with shells and sharks teeth, as well as its lovely sunsets and charming palm-tree lined town center.
Historic downtown Venice is built entirely in the Renaissance-style of the famous Italian city for which it was named. It contains 27 parks, the most famous being the Centennial Park which hosts free weekly concerts. Every Saturday it is the site of a farmers market selling local produce, flowers, along with art and crafts. One biking minute from our house is a free recreation center with basketball, tennis, shuffleboard courts, and children's playground.
Downtown Venice has a milelong of palm trees, outdoor cafes, specialy shops, boutiques and a live theater.
On Venice Island you will fall in love with the beaches, and the laid-back attitude of the natives.
Most guests fly into Sarasota ( 25 minutes ) or Ft Myers ( 40 minutes). Venice was recently voted as 'America's Top Place To Live' by Relocate America, and 'Where to Retire' Magazine listed Venice as one of the top eight most walkable cities.
