Designation as a Florida Main Street City by the State further assures the city's heritage will be preserved. The historic 1925 city planned community of Venice Florida abounds in natural beauty and splendor and great beach options:
Brohard Paw Park (Dog Friendly Beach)
For dog lovers, noteworthy in Venice is The Brohard Paw Park (1600 Harbor Dr. S., 941-861-9830), with dog drinking fountains, showers on decks for dogs only, fire hydrants and leash posts. The park is also adjacent to the only beach area in the county where dogs are allowed to roam free. Dog lovers have declared this park and beach to be the best dog friendly park in the state.
The longest beach in Sarasota County, is located south of Venice Airport on Harbor Drive. It has been left in its natural state, uncultivated, windswept, and secluded. This is an exceptionally good area to look for and find pre-historic sharks teeth as well as enjoyable shelling. It is also site of the annual Sharks Tooth and Seafood Festival.
Venice Municipal Beach
An excellent place to find sharks teeth and other fossilized material and attracts divers to its coral reef about one quarter mile offshore.
Nokomis Beach, a quiet, family-oriented beach, a good place for fishing, strolling, or launching a boat.
Tim and I love to travel and experience other cultures, especially in Spain. Some of our favorite pass times are boating, biking, walking, antiquing and playing with our 2 dogs.
We purchased this home with the desire to turn it into our little Spanish getaway within the U.S.. Only now we can take the dogs with us too.
We fell in love with Venice because of the historic small town feel on the island. We challenge ourselves to either bike or walk wherever we go and not use the car. Everything we need is close enough to do that. But if we need a 'Home Depot fix' we are also close to many amenities, recreational areas and site seeing spots.
