Beaching in Venice Florida

Off to the beach to soak up the sun in Florida. Bye, bye Canadian snow blues. Venice is a historic city by Florida standards. Originally known as "Horse & Chaise," homesteaders settled into the region in the 1860s and renamed it in 1888 after Italy's famous city of canals. In the 1920s, well-known city planner John Nolen laid out the wide boulevards and streets with numerous parks. Specifications that all construction be of the Italian style gave the city a unique character that is carried on today.There's a lot to do when visiting Venice. Historic Downtown Venice's unique shops are only 1.6 miles from the Crow's Nest. We are known as the "Sharktooth Capital of the World" because beachgoers can find the prehistoric shark teeth along the miles of wide beaches. The area boasts over a dozen championship golf courses. Fishing and boating abound in the gulf and waterways of Venice. Cultural activities are important to Venetians; the Venice Little Theater, Venice Symphony and Venice Art Center are busy venues
