Venice beaxh is one of our favorite beaches in Florida. Parking is easy and free. Concession stand has good food (birgers and hot dogs) for lunch. Showers and bathrooms are there. Easily accessible to swim, dive, etc.

We enjoyed the long beach with plenty of parking and much without any high rises blocking the natural sea oats. pretty park running along Venice Ave to the shopping district. Very pretty large trees. We rode bikes.

Venice Beach was beautiful, relaxing, and not overly crowded or loud, which we enjoyed. It is very clean and a great place to enjoy sunsets.

Long a long lazy hot and sticky 4-5 mile walk from Nokomis Beach all the way down to Benice Pier. Beautiful day!
