Thank You Venice

My wife and I just returned from a 10 day vacation in the Venice area. It was pure heaven. I just wanted to say thank you, Venice, for your cleanliness, friendliness, hospitality and all the bright smiles.

We spent seven out of our ten days on the Venice beach sunbathing, hunting shark teeth (found 78 of them!), enjoying the surf and basically being beach bums.

We met and talked to a lot of you here and there and everyone seemed to have a permanent smile on their face.

It further reinforced our decision to move to Venice, if only our Chicago home would sell!

Croixian - I agree with you 100%. My husband and I fell in love with Venice Florida so much that we just bought a house there 1 month ago.

Croixian, what area of the beaches did you find sharks teeth? My family is headed to the beach next spring and would love for my kids to find some teeth.

What method do you use as we have only one day in the area dont want to waste any time! Oh and welcome back to the busy area of Chicago Land!

It really nice to read this report. My husband and I also fell in love with Venice when we visited and have just bought a house there. we can't wait for November to be back. I am constructing a website at the moment for our new villa, so am doing quite a bit of research. It is amazing just how much there is to do in Venice. If anyone wants any ideas on things to do and where to stay let me know and I will pass on web address.

Regards

Janet
