Take a look at Venice homes to join a community with a rich history and an abundance of character. Venice was born in 1926 when a frenzy of construction began. Buildings had to be built in the Northern Italian Renaissance architectural style. There have been high construction standards here and the city’s beauty has stood the test of time. Venice Avenue has been the key feature of the community since the beginning that ends at the entrance of beautiful Venice Beach.
Parking is free at Venice Beach, there are restrooms and on duty lifeguards. Watch for dolphins, shorebirds, and even shark teeth amongst the sand. Take a walk on the sand, relax while reading a book, or get into the beautiful clear water. There is also a boardwalk, a nice view of the Venice Public Fishing Pier, concessions, volleyball courts, and picnic areas. Caspersen Beach is another great beach to check out. It is a bit hidden, but totally worth getting to. There is a canoe launch, nature trails, playground, fishing pier, and much more.
Children living in Venice homes attend schools in the Sarasota County School District. There are also private school options in the community. Families enjoy spending time at the beach, exploring bike and walking trails, relishing in the sunshine in local parks, learning about history, going shopping, and dining out.
The Venice Museum and Archives is a great place to learn more about the history of Venice and the surrounding area. Ideal Classic Cars Museum and Showroom is a fun place to visit and the Venice Theatre offers many shows throughout the year in a beautiful venue. There are a variety of shops and restaurants along Venice Avenue and spread throughout the city. Check out Old Venice Pub, Abby’s on Miami, Burgundy Square Cafe, Venice Trading Company, Sandy’s Designer Clothing, and many others. Grab fresh produce, seafood, and other grocery items for your Venice real estate at the popular Detwiler’s Farm Market.
