Venice has made a name for itself as an easy-going vacation spot. It attracts an impressive number of tourists and snow birds every year. Venice allows its residents and visitors to escape some of the more stressful cities and situations with its scenery and structure. A leisurely day out might consist of a walk around the proudly quaint and well-kept downtown where you can find shopping centers and locally-owned restaurants to relax in. Or perhaps you’d prefer taking a trip through history by traipsing down the Myakka River where you can snap some photos of beautiful old Florida scenery or through the city itself which hosts a number of notable historic buildings landmarked by the National Register of Historic Places.
And, of course, everyone must visit Venice’s beaches and spend a day searching for its famous stock of shark teeth. Maybe you’ll even catch the annual Shark Tooth Fest! Lucky beach wanderers have even been known to happen upon other types of fossils and of course, beautiful shells. Or maybe you would more enjoy a stroll through one of Venice’s open parks with a friend and a picnic to sit under a stately live oak with.
