The relaxed, Gulf Coast paradise of Venice Beach

Venice Beach checks every box on your list of Reasons to Take A Break in Florida: hot summers, mild winters, sand, and an easy-going vibe. There’s a wide variety of beaches, some complete with coral reefs and shark-tooth fossils, plus a shopping district with designer boutiques, an impressive local art gallery, and a museum of local history set in a gorgeous 1920s inn. Your Venice Beach vacation rental will sit comfortably in a small, friendly community of fellow travelers and year-round residents, and just minutes away from more museums, parks and family fun.

Sandy shores and sophisticated shopping in Venice Beach

The name says it all. Venice Beach is known for its beautiful sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. The most popular is Venice Beach itself, a long sandy stretch dotted with picnic tables and lined with convenient boardwalks. The region is known for its gob-smacking sunsets, so bring a towel, your best friends, and get ready to stay late. A trip to West Venice Avenue will satisfy shopaholics with its charming boutiques, and the Venice Art Center shows the work of local artists year-round.

Whether a scholar or a circus geek, you'll love Venice Beach

Check out the Venice Museum & Archives, set in the historic 1927 Triangle Inn building, which tells the story of the local people and communities. You can take a tour of the building itself, too, an excellent example of the Mediterranean Revival style. If you've got kids, or are just a kid at heart, you won't want to miss the Circus Museum in Sarasota, only 30 minutes from your Venice Beach vacation rental. You can walk a tightrope, squeeze into a clown car, and marvel at the cannon that once shot circus performers through the air.

The perfect nest for a family of snowbirds

Humid, subtropical Venice Beach is a haven for those of us who ask ourselves, “Who needs winter, anyway?” Summer high temps soar into the 90s, and in the dead of winter, they dip to a rather fabulous 70ºF. Snowbirds flock to the area from January through April, so if you’re one of them, early booking may be advisable. If you love the heat and a quieter atmosphere, you’re in luck. It’ll be easy to find the Venice Beach vacation rental of your choice, and you may find lower prices, too.

Venice Beach–where the streets are paved with shark teeth

Okay, not exactly, but Venice Beach is known as the “shark tooth capital of the world” for good reason. Don’t worry – these teeth don’t come with sharks attached. Simply don your goggles and head out into the waves off Caspersen Beach, where fossilized shark teeth are most plentiful. Travelers often manage to spot one of these pointy souvenirs in a few hours or less. They’ve been collected at Venice Municipal Beach, too, where nature-loving swimmers and snorkelers can also explore the coral reef a quarter-mile from shore and just below the water’s surface.
