Venice

The "Shark Tooth Capital of the World"

Aptly named one of Coastal Living’s "Best Places to Live on the Coast" in 2020 and “Happiest Seaside Towns in America” in 2015, this island town’s charming main street offers shopping and dining and meanders through stately 1920s homes leading straight to the Gulf of Mexico. 

Once a fishing and farming community, this city in the heart of Sarasota County has blossomed into a vacation destination, where families play in the surf, hunt for prehistoric shark teeth, shop through downtown, bike around the Venetian Waterway Trail and "catch the big one" at the Venice Pier.

Estero Island - "The beaches of Florida are among some of the most beautiful in the world. Our heart-felt and economic appreciation of our beaches should necessitate our involvement in protecting their environment. PLEASE don’t let anyone put oil wells offshore of Florida. I am from Southern California where one has to take paint remover to the beach in order to remove the oil waste from soles of our feet. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen to our beautiful Florida beaches." -Clyde Butcher
