Venice Island, Venice

Venice on the Florida West coast is located just south of Sarasota. Venice has more of a small town feel compared to the bigger city of Sarasota. The city has a beautiful historic downtown.

Venice is a meticulously planned city, with sweeping tree lined boulevards, closeness to the beaches, parks, greenways, the Intracoastal Waterway and residential areas. The ambiance of Venice Island, the old Florida flavor is protected by laws that limit the size and number of buildings. Every Saturday morning the city hosts a farmer’s market and periodically art and craft fairs.

The Island offers a unique opportunity to live on, or very near, the Gulf of Mexico and with easy access to shopping, the Arts Center, hospital, schools, the library and restaurants. Venice Beach is one of the few cities on Florida’s west coast with no barrier islands. The nearly 300 feet wide Venice beaches are uncluttered and less developed than most. Venice even has a beach for dogs called PAWS park. Venice beaches are one of the best places on the Gulf Coast to find fossilized shark’s teeth. You can find shark’s teeth three to seven inches long only a few miles out in the Gulf. Every August Venice has a Shark’s Tooth Festival.

Throughout The City of Venice are numerous distinct neighborhoods. You’ll find gated golf course developments such as the Venice Golf and Country Club, Waterford Golf Club, Pelican Pointe Golf and Country Club, and Calusa Lakes Golf Club.

Along Laguna Drive and Bayshore Drive you will find magnificent waterfront homes with private docks and views of Roberts Bay.
