Destination guide

Visit Venice at vacation home rentals

The world's got a few good Venices, and you'll find this particular Venetian gem on Florida's Gulf Coast. With miles of powdery sand beaches and coral reefs, Venice Beach is a quiet treasure. There are also the rocky shores of Caspersen Beach, where you're sure to spot some shark teeth that collect in the area's calm waters. Venice vacation rentals are in a small city with an older population, so it's calm and peaceful vibes all the way to the beach. If you head inland, you'll find intracoastal walking and biking trails and lots of green spaces like Centennial Park.

Things to do

Tourist attractions near vacation rentals in Venice

You don't need a fishing license to cast a line off the 700-foot Venice Fishing Pier, which sits on a white-sand beach with picnic areas, volleyball courts, and a golf course. Bird nerds will love bird-watching from the canopy walkway at nearby Myakka River State Park. And if you're a fine art lover, you'll find lots to love at the Venice Art Center, including a gallery, and year-round events and classes.

You'll see why Venice is the Shark's Tooth Capital of the World if you attend the Shark's Tooth Festival in April, or hunt for teeth on the beaches. Rest-assured these teeth are not connected to any live sharks; in fact, it's pretty rare to spot one here. Also in April is the Suncoast BBQ and Bluegrass Bash, a food-and-music delight at Venice Airport Festival Grounds. Don't forget to down some delicious coastal cuisine, like succulent stone crabs. And while you want to avoid any live gators, you can try some gator hush puppies with your fried fish and cold beer.


Local weather for your stay in vacation homes in Venice

The heat is on in this humid climate, with summer highs in the 90s. Venice has a lot of "snowbirds," the nickname for all those northern folks who hit the subtropics to escape the ice. And understandably so, as temperatures in the winter months are comfortably in the 60s. During your stay at your Venice vacation rental, you're most likely to see rain and Florida's famous thunderstorms from June to October, and remember, that's hurricane season, too. You'll love swimming in the warm gulf waters, but keep in mind that water temps dip down to the mid 60s in winter.
