What's Not to Love About Venice Florida?

People have a way of visiting Venice and falling in love. Many of us not lucky enough to have been born here first visited as tourists and decided to stay forever. Others visit year after year and Venice welcomes its snowbirds. Like other tourist destinations, we have beaches, boating, golf courses and great weather, but Venice offers so much more. It is a community that honors its past, carefully plans for its future and thoroughly enjoys today. What’s not to love about our piece of paradise?  They say that life’s a journey, not a destination. For many of us who’ve been on the journey for a while, Venice is the destination.

For a small city with just over 20,000 year round residents, we enjoy big city advantages: our community theatre is known as one of the best in the nation; we have award winning restaurants, an arts center, our own symphony, parks and bicycle trails, shopping and health care facilities that make Venice a regional destination.

The Venice area always has something going on, even during the dog-days of Summer.
