Venice draws people with widely varied interests.

Are you a nature lover? Do you want to walk out your front door to good shops and restaurants? Will you absolutely move back to Buffalo if you can’t find that perfect bayfront home?

Venice draws people with widely varied interests, but local realtors tell us nearly all are looking for a true community, where neighbors meet at the Saturday-morning farmers market, on the golf course and in the bleachers at Venice High School’s Friday night football games. And while the area has traditionally attracted Northerners longing for sunshine and beaches, people are moving here from closer by as well. The Venice-Nokomis waterfront is more affordable and accessible than in much of the nearby region, and that’s started to bring transplants from Sarasota. And more families are moving here, drawn by Venice’s excellent public schools.

If you’re looking for that ideal Venice-area neighborhood to suit your lifestyle, look here for some choices designed just for you.
