Welcome to our treasured corner of paradise – Venice, Florida – also known as “The Shark Tooth Capital of the World!”

With miles of beautiful beaches, waterways, bike trails, and breathtaking sunsets, it is no wonder Venice is constantly ranked as one of the nation’s top destinations to visit, vacation, and live.

The Venice Area Chamber of Commerce has been promoting local business growth and success and cultivating a vibrant and engaged community since 1925. Our Chamber serves as our area’s visitor center, in partnership with Visit Sarasota County, and offers area maps and information about local attractions, businesses, and events. Our Chamber “family” includes nearly 1,000 member businesses and their employees of over 35,000. Together, our priority is to ensure that your Venice experience far surpasses your expectations!

This year, the theme for our Chamber’s board of directors is “Joining Forces Inclusively.” While Venice is acclaimed for its natural beauty and charming downtown, it’s the collaboration of businesses, volunteers, residents, and elected officials that enriches this special place we call home. These efforts epitomize the hometown spirit of Venice and represent the fabric that binds together our closely-knit community. The Chamber is honored to be a leader in bringing together such local partners for the benefit of everyone. We recognize that community engagement makes the greatest impact when organizations, residents, and businesses “join forces” to attain common goals – and we hope you agree that the results are illuminated as you explore the Venice area.

Please let us know how the Chamber and our resources may enhance your Venice experience. Whether you are visiting, contemplating a relocation, starting a business, or simply looking to expand your community outreach, we welcome the opportunity to connect with you in the process. Thank you for helping us make Venice an even better place for generations to come!

WE HAVE IT ALL

From our 14 miles of pristine beaches to our 30 miles of single-track biking and hiking trails. Originally called Horse and Chaise because of the carriage-like tree formation that marked the spot for fishermen, the name Venice was first applied in 1888 because of its likeness to the canal city in Italy.

Read, discover, and explore.

• Our downtown area has an established “Main Street” status through Venice Mainstreet and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

• As you cruise down the Avenue, shop in one-of-a-kind stores and dine in a variety of local restaurants.

• Take a sunset stroll on North or South Jetty; grab a hotdog and refreshing beverage on either side while taking in some of the best sunsets you will ever see.

• Bike on Venetian Waterway Park or Legacy Trail.

• Kayak or paddleboard the waters of our hidden bays and mangroves.

• While boating in the intracoastal or in the Gulf, you’ll share the waters with dolphins and manatees at play.

• Tee up on one of over 25 public and private golf courses. Venice is also home to some of the best charter fishing anywhere.

If you haven’t found what you’re looking for yet, please call us at: 941-488-2236.

Or better yet, stop in and visit us at our office: 597 Tamiami Trail South, Venice.

Venice is known the world over for its over abundance of pre-historic shark teeth. Thus the well deserved title of “Shark Tooth Capital Of The World”.

R

The Gulf of Mexico is the ninth largest body of water on our planet and home to almost 50 different species of sharks. None however are as large as the extinct Megalodon. The Megalodon sharks grew up to 60 feet long and weighed up to 65 tons. They also had the largest teeth of all sharks, at over seven inches long. Megalodon, meaning “big tooth”, lived here between 2.6 million and 28 million years ago. Of all the fossilized teeth found on our beaches, the Meg’s are the largest and most treasured.

Sharks teeth unlike our teeth have no roots. Their teeth break off easily and some only last a week. However, they have new rows of teeth ready to pop up and replace lost ones. The new tooth can be in place in less than a day. A single shark might lose 30,000 teeth in its lifetime.

Florida has been submerged and raised again and again from the sea, allowing fossilization to occur all over the state. The shallower waters on the West Coast have been more conducive for both the pre-historic sharks to feed and for the creation of thick fossil beds to capture and preserve their teeth.

You can find sharks teeth on any of our Venice beaches. Prime hunting territory stretches from the beach around the Venice Fishing Pier south down to Caspersen Beach. You may want to rent or purchase a “Florida snow shovel” for best results. Use the shovel to gather sand and sediment. Then shake the sifter at the end of the pole to empty out everything but the teeth.

If you strike out on the beaches, after completing one of the Quest scavenger hunts (info on page 14), you can stop in to the Chamber for your own bag. While you’re at the Chamber have your photo taken in front of our huge oversized Megalodon Tooth Monument. The # 1 photo spot in Venice.

CITY OF VENICE

The City of Venice has always been beautiful and historical, but the Venice of today is also vibrant.

Venice features gorgeous, world-class beaches; a thriving downtown with a plethora of unique shops and awesome restaurants for all tastes and budgets; fun nightlife; a wide variety of outdoor activities like golf, fishing and boating, kayaking and paddleboarding, tennis and pickleball; picture-perfect weather; and stunning natural beauty.

As designed by world-renowned planner John Nolen in 1926, Venice has more than 30 parks ranging in size from tiny pocket parks, to modern playgrounds, to the beach along the Gulf of Mexico. Some of the more unique spaces include the Brohard Paw Park, where dogs may romp on the sand with their owners; Venetian Waterway Park, where people can bike and hike on a 5-mile stretch along both sides the Intracoastal Waterway; and Centennial Park downtown, where concerts are held in the Gazebo and kids can splash and play in an Interactive

Children’s Fountain. Tranquil West Blalock Park includes the Monty Andrews Arboretum, where over 80 species of trees and palms are identified with information signs.

Venice looks the way it does in large part due to the tireless volunteers with Venice Area Beautification Inc. – VABI for short – who spend countless hours trimming, weeding, planting and watering, helping to ensure the City’s blooming downtown and parks are exceptional.

Venice’s history is captured in the Venice Museum on Nassau Street, a fun, educational and free way to spend the afternoon. Exhibits range from fossils found in the area to how the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, Kentucky Military Institute, Venice Army Air Base, and Ringling Bros. Circus shaped the City’s story. Don’t forget to visit the museum’s distinctive gift shop, with its unique, one-ofa-kind items.

Public art abounds, with colorful murals and sculptures of native wildlife. Currently, the Venice Art Center’s FantaSea project has 52 striking mermaid and seahorse

Our “City on the Gulf” boasts 3.5 miles of beach available to the public with free parking. The Venice Fishing Pier and South Jetty are two other popular, scenic locations to take in the area’s turquoise waters and spectacular sunsets.

The real estate market is thriving, there are plenty of diverse job opportunities, health care facilities are preeminent, and the schools are some of the best in the state. There are so many events and other activities that happen all year long in the City of Venice that are free to attend, for all ages. The area is perfect for young families, and it’s also ideal for those looking to retire – there are so many amenities for all walks of life.

It has been a pleasure to serve this community for over 45 years. I remember when my dad first started Tri County Air back in 1977. He worked so hard to build this company into everything he dreamed it could be. When he called and asked me to join him full time in 1987, I thought it would be a great opportunity to spend more time with my dad, but I had no idea how much this decision would impact my life. Today, Tri County Air is three generations strong because our family is committed to caring for your family’s comfort.

Every year, Tri County Air is honored to serve over 36,000 families across Manatee, Sarasota, and Charlotte counties by providing the area’s best and most trusted air conditioning service, maintenance, sales, and installations. When you choose to work with us, you become like a member of our family. Our mission every day is: “To comfort all in such a way that they are compelled to tell others about their experience, and it honors the Great Comforter, Jesus Christ.” We will proudly live out this mission as we serve your family and business.

In 2019, Tri County Air was honored to receive the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award. That same year, our non-profit, Serve Florida, was awarded the Pillar of the Community Award by the Mayor of Venice. In 2020, our team received the Sarasota Chamber Frank G. Berlin Small Business Award. The year after that, we were awarded the Best of SRQ Local Platinum Award and the Venice Gondolier Best of Venice Award. Finally, in 2022, we again won the Best of SRQ Local Platinum Award, the Sarasota Herald Tribune Reader’s Choice Award, and the

Lennox Community Award. These awards showcase the fulfillment of our values and mission by each and every employee who has worked hard to serve our community since 1977.

to the mainland. A low tidal marsh was cut from the mainland in 1907, during the initial dredging of the Intercoastal Waterway and used as a spoil site for dredged materials.

Beneath the marsh, mud-covered with spoil lay a coastal shell midden dating from A.D. 600-1500. The site was apparently inundated by the rising sea level.

VENICE

8,436

Florida has 8,436 miles of coastline, second only to Alaska.

663

There are 663 miles of beaches between both the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.

14

The Venice area claims 14 of those beach miles, stretching from Casey Key to Manasota Key on the Gulf Coast.

3

Venice is also one of only 3 Florida cities situated directly on the water with no barrier islands.

1.34

8% of the 16.81 square miles in the City of Venice, or 1.34 miles is water.

It comes as no surprise then that the name Venice was first suggested for “The City On The Gulf” as early as 1888 because of its likeness to the canal city in Italy.

Visit the Venice Art Center, 390 S. Nokomis Ave., where you can take a class or admire the work of others. This is a great place to buy one-of-a-kind souvenirs or gifts. Open Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Learn about the latest exhibits at veniceartcenter. org. Then have lunch at the Art Caffe, where you can enjoy a freshly made crema Catalana.

While at the Venice Cultural Campus, walk over to the Venice Museum and Archives, 351 S. Nassau St., where you can learn about Dr. Fred Albee, the famous orthopedic surgeon who developed bone grafting. Albee was responsible for hiring John Nolen to design this early planned city. Kids will enjoy the display of prehistoric fossils from the area. Hours are Monday – Wednesday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Learn more at venicemuseum.org.

Then cross Nassau Street and stroll through the Monty Andrews Arboretum at West Blalock Park where more than 80 species of palms and other trees are identified. Three kid-proof statues by Atlanta sculptor Thomas Prochnow can be found throughout the park.

No Venice art tour is complete without a visit to the Venice Gallery & Studio of world-renowned photographer Clyde Butcher, 237 Warfield Ave. The gallery is open Tuesday – Friday, 10 a.m. –4:30 p.m. For information, see ClydeButcher.com. You’ll be fascinated with the detail in these large black and white photos captured in the Florida wilderness.

FOR THE THRILL OF THE CHASE

Stroll the streets of downtown Venice to admire a multitude of artists’ murals capturing the history and semitropical environment of the area.

HEALTHY FOOD AND SOUVENIRS

Venice Farmers’ Market, 401 W. Venice Ave., is open Saturdays, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. Fresh produce, baked goods, and hand-made souvenirs, from sandals to ceramics, are all reason ably priced. When you finish shopping, walk about a block south to John Nolen Park and read about this early planned city.

During your strolls throughout Venice, watch for the mermaids and seahorses painted by area artists. You can download the Scavify app and search for Venice Quest, the FantaSea Mermaids & Seahorses Quest, which will take you to all 52 locations. For a map of the temporary display, go to fantaseavenice. com/index.php/map. Take lots of photos. You may be able to purchase your favorite in a few months. In the meantime, you may buy a small mermaid or seahorse to paint in your own design. They are available at the Venice Art Center.

DOWN ALONG THE BEACH R

Of course, you want to go to the beach. Why not start at Sharky’s on the Pier, 1600 S. Harbor Dr., where you can get your favorite Margarita and snack on beach fries and conch fritters. Take a few steps out to the pier and watch anglers reel in their catches. If the sun is about to set, so much the better. Venice is known for having some of the most beautiful sunsets anywhere. After-dinner, stroll along the shoreline, watching for precious little dark prehistoric sharks’ teeth to wash up. You’ll want to watch for these gems up and down the coast in Venice, Shark’s Tooth Capital of the World.

GET CLOSE TO NATURE

Spend some time with nature at Caspersen Beach, 4100 Harbor Dr., at the south end of the road. But before you go, stop off at Shark Frenzy, 262 S Tamiami Trail, to purchase your Florida snow shovel to aid you in sharks’ teeth hunting. After spending the morning searching for sharks’ teeth, take the kids across the dirt road to the playground or walk to Venetian Waterway Park to watch the boats sail by on the Intracoastal Waterway. Later drive to the South Jetty, 2000 Tarpon Center Dr., for one of the most spectacular sunsets you’ll ever see. Get there a little before dusk to catch a glimpse of manatees or dolphins.

BRING YOUR BEST BUDDY

Traveling with a furry friend? Your favorite canine will love Paw Park at Brohard Beach, 1850 S. Harbor Dr. Let your pup run along the sandy shoreline and

take a dip in the salt water. There’s always a big dog party there. When ready to leave, rinse Fido down at the doggy showers. You can also take your buddy for a walk on Venetian Waterway Trail. Then head back downtown for al fresco dining at any number of restaurants that allow dogs to sit under your table in their outdoor dining areas.

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME R

Watch the World Series Champion Atlanta Braves get their game on at an Atlanta Braves spring training game at CoolToday Park, 18800 W. Villages Parkway Then take in some live music at Superior Pools Tomahawk Tiki Bar & Grill.

A FLIGHT TO TAKE

Ever dream of flying through the air with the greatest of ease? In Venice, you can be that daring young man or woman on the flying trapeze. At Tito Gaona’s Flying Trapeze Academy, 1401 S. Ringling Dr., you will experience the exhilaration for yourself. Gaona thrilled the audiences of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and the Big Apple Circus with his daring trapeze feats. Now you can learn the art from the master. Find out more at titogaona.com.

TAKE FLIGHT

Herons, egrets and bats, oh my. That’s what you’ll find at the Venice Rookery, 4002 S. Tamiami Trail, turn south on Annex Rd., and pass the county administrative building. Bring a camera (but not your dog) to capture photos of some of the most stunning birds in the world. Be prepared for the cuteness of fledglings in spring. Although the rookery is available to everyone year round, the Audubon Center is open September through May. Learn more at veniceaudubon.org.

TRAIL BLAZING

RDidn’t bring a bicycle? Research the several places to rent one listed in this book. Then pedal out to one of the bike and pedestrian trails. Ride along Venetian Waterway Park, through the Urban Forest, next to the Intracoastal Waterway or travel north on Legacy Trail as far up the nearly 20-mile stretch as you want. Pack a picnic in case you ride all the way to Oscar Scherer State Park, almost 10 miles from Venice. Oh, the things you will see. Tropical birds, gopher tortoises, soaring eagles, palmetto shrub and ancient oak trees are only some. Find maps and more at friendsofthelegacytrail.org and traillink.com

ANYONE FOR CROQUET?

Did you know Venice is home to one of the top croquet clubs in North America? You too can learn the sport on Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. Or you can watch the best in competition at the course, 1400 Lucaya Ave., off Pinebrook Rd. Check out the schedule at Sarasotacountycroquet.com.

JUST WANT TO CHILL?

Stroll through the streets of downtown Venice to shop among the beautiful, unique stores. When you’re ready to drop, the Daiquiri Deck, 300 W. Venice Ave., has your order, with more than 30 daiquiris to choose from and a menu of irresistible snacks. Lean back and let the live island music take you there. Learn more at daiquirideck.com and find out more about the downtown area at visitvenicefl.org. It may be time now to find out what’s playing at the internationally acclaimed, award-winning Venice Theatre, 140 W. Tampa Ave. Go to venicetheatre. org for the schedule.

Your 48 hours may be almost up, but you’ll have memories to last a lifetime. Didn’t find that precious shark’s tooth? No worries. The Venice Area Chamber of Commerce, 597 S. Tamiami Trail, has a handful for you to take home. It is open Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. You can do all this and more in just two days. But, be forewarned. If you spend 48 hours in Venice, you’ll never want to leave.

THE VENICE LIFESTYLE

The sparkling bluegreen waters of the Gulf of Mexico entice visitors to the many beaches for a variety of activities.

You can spend the day kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, hunting for prehistoric sharks’ teeth or jogging with your furry buddy. Speaking of your buddy, many visitor accommodations accept pets and some restaurants with outdoor dining allow Fido to tag along. With more than 20 miles of paved trails along the Intracoastal Waterway and several places to rent bicycles, pedaling is a great way to see the area. Playgrounds abound for children and people of all ages will enjoy world-class birding at the Venice Rookery. More than 13 golf courses, some of which are public, are appreciated by golfers of every level of play. But at the end of the day, like native Venetians, you’ll want to be at the beach for the captivating sunset.

BEACHES

VENICE BEACH

Venice Beach is a short walk from downtown at the west end of Venice Avenue. The Pilot House on Venice Beach has bites and baskets you can eat in the shade of the pavilion. Those looking for activity will find volleyball nets and, of course, the Venice sport of shark-tooth hunting. Divers can swim a quarter of a mile offshore to explore a man-made reef. 401 W. Venice Ave., Venice, FL 34285.

SERVICE CLUB PARK

Adjacent to Brohard Beach, Service Club Park offers playground equipment, boardwalks and covered picnic areas. But be on the lookout. The rare but friendly Florida scrub jay might decide to join you for lunch while a gopher tortoise makes his rounds nearby. 1190 Harbor Dr. South, Venice FL 34285.

VENICE PIER

A favorite place for fishing and viewing sunsets is the Venice Pier, seaward of Sharky’s on the Pier and Fins at Sharky’s restaurants. Visitors may walk along the 740-foot structure over the gulf waters. 1600 Harbor Dr., Venice, FL 34285

Nokomis Beach is the oldest public beach in Sarasota County. This family-oriented park at the end of Albee Road is known for fishing. It has a boat ramp and kayak launch from which to explore the Intracoastal Waterway, Lyon’s Bay and Turner’s Island. For a bit of local color, be sure to catch the Drum Circle on Wednesdays and Saturdays, beginning two hours before sunset. 901 Casey Key Rd., Nokomis, FL 34275.

NORTH JETTY

At the south end of Casey Key is the jetty, a man-made structure creating a water passage between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway. The North Jetty Beach is popular for fishing, sunbathing, hearing occasional impromptu live music, enjoying a snack at the Shark’s Tooth Concession, and of course, watching the many types of watercrafts cruise by. 1100 Casey Key Rd., Nokomis, FL 34275.

People come from around the nation so their water-loving pups can play at this park. Venice welcomes its canine visitors. Here are other places your pets might enjoy with you.

VENETIAN WATERWAY PARK

bird species utilize the small island within the pond as a nesting and breeding ground. Predominant are Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Anhingas, Snowy Egrets, Cormorants, White Ibises, and Black-Crowned Night Herons. Other species that have frequented the Rookery are Common Moorhens, Piedbilled Grebes, Wood Storks, Red-Winged Blackbirds, and even Whistling Ducks.

The 25’x50’ island covered in pepper trees, is surrounded by a small lake with a resident alligator who keeps predators such as raccoons at bay. With this sentry, the Rookery becomes an ideal, protected setting for the birds to raise and nurture their families.

SOUTH JETTY

On the other side of the canal, but accessed from the island of Venice, is the South Jetty, a paved walkway out into the Gulf waters where fishermen excite onlookers with their catch of the day. Go just before sunset for the best opportunity to spot dolphins and manatees. Earlier in the day, enjoy snacks at the concession, and a chance to hear live music.

CASPERSEN BEACH

Want to know what Florida beaches looked like before people arrived? Head south to Caspersen Beach where you’ll find granular brown sand protected by forests of mangroves, dotted with freshwater and saltwater marshes and tidal flats. It is as nature intended. Across the road is a kayak launch to Red Lake and the Intracoastal Waterway, playground, pavilions, and a walkway leading to the south end of the Venetian Waterway Trail. 4100 Harbor Dr., Venice, FL 34285.

This walking and biking trail is 10 miles on both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway. It connects to the 20-mile Legacy Trail going north from Venice. Dogs on leashes are welcome, but keep in mind the pavement can get too hot for their paws at times. Parts of the trails are in natural settings where you may spot Florida scrub jays, gopher tortoises, alligators, coyotes and bob cats.

WORLD FAMOUS ROOKERY

An overlooked gem in the Venice Area, that even some residents don’t know about, is the Venice Area Audubon Rookery.

Tucked away behind the county administration building, less than a quarter mile off Tamiami Trail, a small, unassuming, man-made pond hosts a world-renowned rookery.

During January, February and March, many

Professional photographers, as well as amateurs, gather in the early morning hours and at dusk to capture images of the roosting birds. Cleared areas and well-worn paths allow easy access for those who have discovered this natural treasure. The Venice Area Audubon Rookery is located off of Tamiami Trail S., just north of Jacaranda Blvd. Turn onto Annex Road, between the Florida State Highway Patrol building and the R.L. Anderson Sarasota County Administration Building. 4002 S. Tamiami Trail, Venice. veniceaudubon.org/rookery

FISHING

Freshwater streams and rivers flow from Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte County into a bay protected by the barrier islands. It’s a perfect-sized estuary teeming with a diverse wildlife ecosystem of birds, fish and

mammals. With so many options for fish ing, where to start can be a difficult choice. Use our fishing guide as a resource to help you catch the next “big one.”

Most visiting anglers opt to cast in the bay or offshore as saltwater fishing offers multiple environments with different species of fish favoring different spots. Seagrass beds are home to seatrout, redfish, and bluefish. Elsewhere snapper, jack crevalle, sheepshead and black drum can be found near piers, bridges and other structures. Offshore, reefs and wrecks are popular hangouts for grouper, amberjack, and snapper.

Freshwater fishing in Myakka River State Park or Oscar Scherer State Park is a fun option, and can also appeal to visitors looking to also explore other eco-recreational activities. Anglers targeting panfish can find bluegill, speckled perch, and redear sunfish, and largemouth bass.

Fishing from the shore is an easy way to get a line in the water, and there are several places to go. Depending on the time of year, tide and a few other factors, hitting the right place at the right time can mean a major payload.

With a motorized boat you can cover much more ground, but follow boating etiquette and obey vessel speed regulations. Tides, water temperature, depth of water, wind and even moon phases play a role in a day’s success. Area fishing reports help identify how and where to fish, and several can be found doing an online search.

A kayak can be the best of both worlds — giving anglers the ability to paddle further from shore while sneaking where boats won’t fit. Consider renting from our kayak rental members.

Offshore will have you fighting to reel in behemoths such as cobia, king mackerel, black fin tuna, grouper and even sharks, which can be a battle of a lifetime. You could need the full day to do it. Inshore fishing means less traveling but no less fun. Popular fish such as snook, Spanish mackerel, and spotted sea trout are a fun fight. To book a charter on your visit, check our tours and attractions page and membership directory.

PADDLING

Explore the hidden world of Venice by taking an adventure down the road waterway less traveled, Alligator Creek.

The intracoastal waterway canal was excavated in the 1960s and created the island of Venice.

Hatchett Creek and Alligator Creek are at the north and south ends, respectively.

The shoreline is entirely composed of rock revetment, and now hosts the Venetian Waterway Park along its banks.

Marina Park, located on the northeast side, offers a boat launching ramp into the ICW. A perfect canal for kayaking! Enjoy a family fun day paddleboarding and kayaking down the waterway.

Venice Jetties The Venice Inlet has two jetties with lots of rocks meaning two things: lots of fish and lost tackle. These rocks will attract snook and sheepshead.

Venice Pier and Caspersen Beach A long pier on Caspersen Beach next to the popular restaurant, Sharky’s on the Pier, the Venice Pier extends quite a ways out into the water. Caspersen Beach continues further south, and the rocky seawalls or groynes provide for some good fishing opportunities.

Englewood and Manasota Key Lemon Bay Park in Englewood is good for wading, but be sure to have the proper equipment, or consider renting a kayak. Stump Pass State Park on the south end of Manasota Key is a good fishing spot as the tidal currents from the pass bring in schools of fish.

RRules & Regulations: A fishing license is required for both Florida residents and visitors, though licenses are provided if you take a charter. Licenses can be purchased at an outfitter or by calling 888347-4356. If you intend to keep fish, be aware of bag limits, size regulations and season restrictions. Check myfwc.com for regulation information.

BIKING

LEGACY TRAIL

Undoubtedly the most popular route in Venice, Legacy Trail follows 10.7 miles of paved trail from Venice to Sarasota, cutting through Oscar Scherer State Park. The path previously served as the railroad tracks used by Ringling Brothers and others creating a perfect merge of history and athletics. For the course of the trail, bikers (as well as walkers, runners, skaters, and scooter-ers) enjoy a much-shaded, paved trail with almost no vehicle interruption. With vegetation on either side, critters abound. Legacy Trail also offers benches, drinking fountains,

DOGGY DINING

and restrooms. It’s also a great place for young riders as most of Legacy Trail does not provide car access and they cannot get lost on its straight route. Riders can opt to begin at the trail start, or choose a variety of parking locations spanning its length for a customized ride.

VENETIAN WATERWAY PARK TRAIL

The Venetian Waterway Park trail follows the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), so bikers have a breeze and a view of the water along the 8.6-mile paved route. Linking to Legacy Trail, riders can opt to intertwine the two or explore them individually. Amongst the seaside scenery, wading birds make their appearances, reptiles and amphibians scurry by, and even bobcats have been known to say hello. Dolphins may jump out to challenge you to a race. Keep going and end up at popular Caspersen Beach, where sharks’ teeth abound and views of the Gulf wow its visitors. Bikers should be sure to bring plenty of water as the Venetian Waterway Park trail does not offer this amenity.

VENICE ISLAND BIKE LOOP

Biking these 11 miles will give riders an excellent tour of the city of Venice. It’s an opportune way to get a bearing of the area, see the architecture, foliage, and people that make Venice unique. Stop for a visit to the beach, watch boats on the Intracoastal, check out the Jetty, stop and admire the shops in the historic downtown district, say hi to some locals, and keep on pedaling.

CARLTON RESERVE

For a ride that is literally off the beaten path, go mountain-biking on the 100 miles of trails at Carlton Reserve. The 9.3 “Boldly Go” route will give you a challenge. Riding amongst the natural environment, the slash pines and palmetto palms, authentic, wild Florida surrounds you. Wild hogs, armadillos, birds of prey, snakes, and more make this Reserve their home.

Many restaurants in our greater area welcome leashed dogs to dine with their owners al fresco. On Florida’s sunny Gulf Coast, there’s plenty of patio space. Before you and your four-legged family member head out to dine, call ahead to make sure they’re dog friendly. Remember, Venice gets lots of sunshine, especially during the summer. Keep your pet cool by carrying bottled H2O and a travel water dish for your pup at all times. Notice pavement heat — if it’s too hot for your bare feet, it’s too hot for Fido’s, too. Never leave a pet in a vehicle in Florida.

R

Biking through Venice opens up a world of opportunities. Gliding by, riders get the opportunity to see wildlife that may scurry from cars or chit chatters. Birds, lizards, snakes, and even larger creatures like panthers may linger. Venice, rated a Silver-rate Bicycles Friendly Community by Bikeleague. org, abounds with urban and natural routes that venture through State Parks, around lakes, amongst historic shops, and beneath canopies. Paved and predetermined, the routes give the riders the opportunity to venture undistracted and appreciate the world around them, free of distraction but full of the treasures Venice has to offer.

PARKS, PLAYGROUNDS, ACTIVITIES AND JUST PLAIN FUN!

When vacations become so jam-packed with activities that they start to feel like your normal routine, it’s time to take a break. We encourage visitors to lean into a “staycation” day while they are visiting. No Commitments, no reservations, this is about you, your family and a relaxing day at the park, the golf course or out on the water reeling in the “big one”.

“ We were so happy to have chosen Nick and Beth to sell our house. They were very personable and knowledgeable. We asked numerous questions over the phone and each was answered promptly. Don’t go with anyone else.”

Linda & Harold H. | Sellers

“ We have bought with Nick, sold with Nick, and bought again. You would be hard pressed to find anyone who knows the Venice market better and he has an intuitive sense of getting the price right. Maybe even more importantly, he has guided us through all the details that come with any deal and he has a great network of support services. He and Beth are great people to work with and we cannot recommend them highly enough.”

In December 2021, Venice home prices were up 29.0% compared to last year, selling for a median price of $400K.

On average, homes in Venice sell after 7 days on the market compared to 23 days last year. There were 243 homes sold in December this year, down from 343 last year.

With more than 14 miles of sandy shoreline, you can easily find your spot on the beach. A Mediterranean mansion on Casey Key could mean the beach is your backyard. Dock your boat across the street, with easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway. Or maybe you want a condo on Venice beach, where you can watch sea rays, dolphins and sailboats from your balcony. Downtown Venice is a nightly party and feast. If restaurants, shops, galleries and history call to you, you can be steps away in a 1920s historic Northern Italian Renaissance home. Golf anyone? You’ll be a

short walk from tee-time in your own stunningly beautiful Florida-style home or luxury villa. When you’re not on the fairway, you can watch other golfers challenge the links from the hammock on your lanai. Maybe you want to put your kayak in the Myakka River right outside your door. Perhaps a home on 5 acres or more would give you and your horses the privacy and peacefulness you crave. There are potential remodels in old established neighborhoods, as well as newly constructed move-in ready homes with modern amenities. The choice is yours in Venice and its neighboring areas of Laurel, Osprey, Nokomis, and Wellen Park. No matter what your lifestyle, you’re almost certain to view palm trees and exotic tropical birds from your home in Paradise. But don’t delay. This market is hot. You’ll want to move fast to keep your dream from getting away.

ARTSEntertainment &

With a world-class community theater and an innovative symphony orchestra, it’s not surprising Venice is a favorite haunt of those who appreciate arts and culture. This John Nolen planned city with its rich history has much to teach. Art abounds, from galleries and murals to the Venice Art Center. Ask any artist and they will tell you, the light in Venice is phenomenal. From the multi-colored sunsets to the brilliant deep blue of the sky to the greens of the gulf to the quaint Northern Italian Renaissance buildings, and the natural beauty and cutting-edge art at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ Historic Spanish Point campus, there are so many wonderous visions to apply to canvas.

MARIE SELBY BOTANICAL GARDENS’ HISTORIC SPANISH POINT CAMPUS

The past meets the future at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ Historic Spanish Point campus. Art meets nature here too.

Located in Osprey about seven miles north of Venice, Selby Gardens’ Historic Spanish Point campus is a 30-acre museum and preserve perched on Little Sarasota Bay. The first site in Sarasota County to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it showcases native Florida plants while preserving and interpreting thousands of years of regional history.

Visitors can explore several distinct periods of the past as they roam the picturesque campus. The archaeological record shows that ancient peoples made their home here as far back as 5,000 years. In fact, the very land that forms today’s campus was made by human hands! By recycling shells from feasts and constructing a platform on which to build homes and hold ceremonies, the First Floridians who lived here gained safety from storm tides and enjoyed the same bay breezes visitors do today. An exhibit

titled “A Window to the Past” lets you literally look back in time at a cross-section of the shell mound that was built here beginning 2,500 years ago.

Moving forward, the site celebrates over 150 years of pioneer heritage dating to homesteaders who settled here in 1867. Visitors may tour a carefully restored 1901 pioneer home, the rehabilitated Mary’s Chapel (with original stainedglass windows and bronze bell), and a reconstructed citrus packinghouse that was a center of local commerce.

Next comes the era of Bertha Palmer, a famous Chicago businesswoman and innovator who chose the site as her winter estate in 1910. Palmer preserved the pioneer buildings and connected them to lavish formal gardens and lawns, three of which—the Sunken Garden, Duchene Lawn, and Jungle Walk Garden—can still be enjoyed today.

The property’s bountiful plant life has become an even greater focus since Historic Spanish Point was adopted by Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in 2020 as a companion to its Downtown Sarasota campus. More than half of the species of native plants found in Sarasota County can be admired along the nature trails and boardwalks of the Historic Spanish Point campus. New features since the adoption include the region’s only butterfly house, which sits next to the large native butterfly garden. Food service and a campus-tocampus boat tour are also available.

Selby Gardens has also introduced cutting-edge art without disrupting the campus’ natural or cultural integrity. Seeing the Invisible: An Augmented-Reality Contemporary-Art Exhibition features 13 international works of art installed

throughout the campus. The only thing is, you must use your smartphone or tablet to experience them! The show runs through September 2023. (Be sure to download the exhibition app before visiting.)

served to your table in the pot! Whether you’re a land lover or connoisseur of seafood, we have something to satisfy all. If that isn’t enough this September, we are beating the heat with Brunch and Bottomless Mimosas on Sundays.

“We care about our customers, and we treat every customer like family. Come hungry leave happy,” said Michael. “We are proud to have you at our table.”

With a name like Bacon, it’s no wonder that restauranteur Michael Bacon and his wife Liz Bacon have created an empire of sizzling hot restaurants in Venice, Florida. They are BrewBurgers, Brew-Za-Bagels, and the new Shuck-N-Ale

Voted best burgers in Venice on several occasions, BrewBurgers fired up its grill in 2010 and since that first burger hit the bun, Bacon Brands has been growing. BrewBurgers menu includes never-frozen freshly-ground award-winning Angus chuck burgers, wings, sandwiches, salads, a bevy of ice-cold beers, and a menu that’s always hand-crafted from fresh. Adding a new location on Venice Island. BrewBurgers Back Porch opened July 2022. Making a splash in the family friendly sports bar scene in Venice. “It’s all about being an exciting and fun place to satisfy your appetite with the best freshlyground Angus burgers around,” says Michael Bacon. “We don’t know what we love more, people or food. We also love community, and we’re always willing to lend a hand to groups in need.”

Looking for a hot idea the next time you throw a party or manage a special event?

American Comfort (BrewBurgers Catering company) is located inside the American Legion on Venice Avenue, and they will do the cooking. They’ve got a partysized selection of what your guests really want. Call us when you need something delicious for 25 to 300+ guests.

Speaking of the hottest places to dine out, there’s a slice of New York in the Sunshine State at Brew-Za-Bagels. It’s a breakfast bar and pizza joint all in one. Get an amazing Black Gold ice coffee, a New York style bagel, or a breakfast sandwich, artistically built with fresh toppings. Crush your cravings for New York style pizza. Brew-Za-Bagels has piping hot 12” or 20” pizza pies and pizza slices too that are piled to the moon with the freshest toppings and finest cheeses on the market.

And just when you thought you knew about every restaurant in Venice, a smokin’ hot new restaurant opened its doors in January. Michael Bacon is proud to introduce Shuck-N-Ale, a Coastal Inspired seafood restaurant that serves only the finest fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood. ShuckN-Ale’s new menu includes a to-die-for raw bar with Gulf favorites and oysters, happy hour 7 days a week including happy hour apps, Bourbon Street entrées like etouffee, gumbo and Cajun favorites.

EDUCATION

Sarasota County schools are known to be some of the best public schools in Florida. More than 43,000 students attend 40 schools including special schools such as Pine View for gifted students, which is rated 15th in the U.S.; Oak Park, which provides educational and therapeutic services to students with disabilities; Booker High School, a magnet school in performing arts; and Suncoast

Polytechnical High School, to name a few. Added to that are nine charter schools with various emphasis. There are also several private schools in the county.

In Venice, there are four elementary schools: Garden, Laurel-Nokomis, Taylor and Venice, serving grades kindergarten through 5. Two middle schools, Laurel and Venice, serve grades 6-8. Venice High School serves grades 9-12. Charter schools include Student Lead-

ership Academy and Sky Academy, both for grades 6-8, and Island Village Montessori for grades K-11. Private schools are Epiphany, grades K-8, and Venice Christian School, grades K-12. Institutions of higher learning include State College of Florida in South Sarasota County, and in Sarasota University of South Florida, New College, Keiser University, Ringling College of Art and Design, East West College of Natural Medicine, and Argosy University.

ISLAND VILLAGE

MONTESSORI SCHOOL

“Today’s School for Tomorrow’s World”

were designed specifically to support Montessori learning. The rooms allow for freedom of movement, independence and collaboration by having clearly defined academic areas and easily accessible materials. The $3.5 million project serves as the much needed replacement for the original aging modular building.

Island Village channels its students’ natural energy with music, drama, art, physical education, and dance which frees them from hours behind a desk. The next phase of the master plan is to build a multi-purpose building that will house a performance center and studios for the STEAM program. The building will hold up to 800 people, and will include a science lab, an engineering lab, 3-D printers, music studios and a dance studio. In addition, a new open-air Physical Education Pavillion will be completed by the end of 2022.

Island Village Montessori School, Sarasota County’s only tuition-free Montessori school, opened its doors to students in 2001. Island Village has earned the status of “high-performing charter school” by the Florida Department of Education since its inception in 2011. It remains the only public Montessori school in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties. The goal is to promote lifelong learning by encouraging students to pursue their interests and nurture their academic curiosity. The result is children who grow into capable adults who have a strong sense of self, the ability to connect with others and the potential to have fulfilling and productive lives. Island Village educates students from pre-school through eighth grade in the Montessori philosophy. Currently, more than 600 students are enrolled.

The school had a ribbon cutting ceremony in August to celebrate the completion of three new buildings to serve approximately 200 students in seven classrooms. The buildings includes computer labs and a library, as well as screened outdoor, open-air learning spaces for each room. They

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MAIN: Beautiful walk through SCF Campus RIGHT: Natural Science Building at SCF Campus

State College of Florida, ManateeSarasota (SCF) is constructing a transformative science facility at SCF Venice. The new 8,913-square-foot Science and Technology Building will open new opportunities for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in Sarasota County, Charlotte County and the surrounding region.

Undertaking such a monumental project requires buy-in locally and at the state level. Recognizing the need for workforce-ready graduates in STEM fields, the Florida Legislature appropriated $2.9 million in 2021 and $1.09 million in 2022 to support the project. With a total project expense exceeding $5 million, the SCF Foundation is mobilizing local support to bridge the gap between state funding and the final cost.

Located off U.S. 41, near the Wellen Park neighborhood and CoolToday Park, the Atlanta Braves Spring Training facility, SCF Venice is close to a large population of high school students and working

adults. Every student at SCF Venice will experience benefits from the new building. When it opens in Fall 2023, the Science and Technology Building will include laboratory space for an additional 100 students, allowing for a diverse schedule of required classes and electives offered at flexible times to accommodate students’ busy lives and commitments.

Assembling top-notch STEM facilities requires more than just spacious labs, vibrant classrooms and functional offices. The new structure will feature those important spaces for students, but the essential equipment includes tools like the Bunsen burner, biosafety storage cabinet, Sterilmatic® sterilizer, Isotemp™ water bath, and gravity convection incubator.

Many of the facilities and tools planned for Venice are already in use at SCF Bradenton, where a significant remodel and expansion of the campus science facilities concluded in 2021. Students are doing important scientific research, like studying new sources of antibiotics and publishing discoveries in the National Center for Biotechnology Information database, known as GenBank®. These students will go on to hold a range of careers, including nurses, lab managers, engineers, chemists, and sometimes even adjunct or full-time instructors who educate the next generation.

SCF was founded in Bradenton in 1957, and SCF Venice opened in 1985, providing a scenic 100-acre campus to meet the community higher education and workforce needs of Sarasota and Charlotte counties. The College has been responsive to the changing needs of the state and local economy over the last 65 years, with STEM classes serving as a critical component of bolstering nursing education, manufacturing degrees, dual enrollment opportunities for high school students, an honors program, and the Gator Engineering partnership with the University of Florida. The new Science and Technology Building will also be an important resource for the SCF Collegiate School in Venice, which prepares students in grades nine to 12 to graduate high school with a diploma and an associate degree.

To learn more about SCF’s efforts to improve STEM facilities and increase student opportunities, contact Chris Collins at 941-752-5653 or CollinC1@SCF.edu.
