With 14 miles of beaches, Venice, just south of Sarasota on Florida’s Southwest Coast, is the place to go for plentiful shopping, family-friendly saltwater adventures, and Old Florida charm.

Easily reachable by foot from the downtown area, Venice Beach, a certified Blue Wave Beach, is the city’s most popular stretch of coastline, where visitors can look for fossils and reef dive a quarter-mile from shore.

Sunbathe on the soft white sand, swim the clear turquoise waters of the Gulf, cast a line from the 700-foot Venice Fishing Pier, and hunt for fossilized prehistoric shark teeth in the Shark Tooth Capital of the World.

Bike the Venetian Waterway Park Trail, shop Historic Downtown Venice, which is full of historic buildings reminiscent of its namesake Italian city, and see why Venice was named a Top Five Suburb for City-Like Living and one of USA Today’s 10Best Must-Visit Beaches in the South for 2023.
