Venice, Florida retirement for Florida Snowbirds and Baby Boomers is a great decision after researching the best places to retire.
Venice, FL, located along Florida’s Gulf Coast just south of Sarasota, Florida is nicknamed “City on the Gulf.” There are not very many cities in Florida that provide easy access to the beach, but Venice has several beaches to choose from. I lived in Naples, Florida for a little while, after being used to Venice and was surprised that we had a very hard time finding a restaurant on the Gulf of Mexico. Venice has many waterfront restaurants that give you the Florida atmosphere you expect and desire.
“Happiest Seaside Town in America”
It’s no wonder Venice, FL was named one of the “Happiest Seaside Towns in America” by Coastal Living in 2015, with beaches like Caspersen Beach and its white sand and tranquil setting on the southern part of the “Island of Venice.”
If the beach is your draw to Florida retirement then knowing that Sarasota County’s beaches are among the best in the United States might help make your decision a little easier.
Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota was ranked the top 3rd in the U.S. by Trip Advisor in 2014. Siesta Key Beach’s sand is as soft and fine as powdered sugar, while the pristine shallow shoreline and calm waters make this beach very inviting. A fun stop near Siesta Key Beach is Siesta Village.
Some of the reason Venice, FL is one of the best places to retire:
- Beautiful sunny days year-round
- Quaint and active downtown
- Smaller town feel
- Boating with easy access to the Gulf
- Kayaking in the calm Gulf and Intra-coastal waters
- Biking (The Legacy Trail – Rails to Trails)
- Many new home resort-style communities
