-- The Neighborhood --
The neighborhood is quiet and relaxed. Walking anywhere on the island is a breeze. Downtown Venice (25 minute walk) is packed with shops, restaurants, and bars. You can usually find live music in town on Friday and Saturday nights. There are often festivals in town on the weekends as well as a farmers market every Sunday.
The beach is the big draw for me, and is only an 8 minute walk away. Further south along the beach you can find Caspersen Beach at the southern tip of the island which has a very natural feel and is a great spot to find prehistoric sharks’ teeth - after all, Venice is known worldwide as the Shark Tooth Capital. There are also nature trails traveling through freshwater and saltwater marshes and mangrove areas. It is quite normal to spot a dozen or so tortoises while walking along these trails. Walking or biking along the Intracoastal Waterway is also highly recommended since Venice has a great paved path all along the way.
Venice also has plenty of great fishing. The popular spots are at the huge fishing pier at Sharky's (there is a bait shop right on the pier), or at the jetty at the northern tip of the island. You can often see dolphins and sometimes manatees from the pier and jetty. You can also choose to fish right from the beach if you'd like.
-- Getting Around --
Venice does have a bus system, but most of what you'll need is in walking distance, biking distance, or short driving distance. Taxis are also available.
There is a Publix (supermarket) right on the island (15 minute walk, 3 minute drive) and a Walmart 4.5 miles away.
