Venice Island was created in the 1960’s when the Army Corp. of Engineers dredged a channel from Hatchett Creek at the north to Lemon Bay to the south. The purpose was to create a safe protected passage for navigation. The original Venice downtown area and surroundings is on the Island. It was designed by John Nolen and is honored by being listed on the National Historic Register. Downtown Venice is a real “downtown” featuring a myriad of shops, professional offices, restaurants, bars and the like. There are many festivals held each year, including an annual Holiday Parade, art shows, car shows, and a weekly farmers market. Downtown is definitely a destination. Venice Island also is home to Venice High School with it’s successful sports programs and the new Performing Arts Hall. Venice Theatre, established in 1950 as “Venice Little Theatre” is the most highly awarded community theatre in Florida and the entire Southeast.  There are two beaches on the Island, Venice Beach & Casperson Beach. The South Jetty at Venice Inlet is a popular spot for watching manatees, dolphin and other marine life, and boaters travelling into the Gulf. Venice Municipal Airport was built in the early 1940’s by the US Government and served as a flight training facility during World War 2. Today it is a General Aviation Facility. Sharky’s Restaurant, a well known spot is right on the beach near the airport, right at the base of the Venice Municipal Pier, a 700 foot long fishing pier. Housing options on the Island range from Condos starting at about $70K all the way up to exquisite waterfront properties priced in the millions.
