Venice is a family-friendly town where locals, snowbirds, and vacationers all live in perfect harmony, for whatever length of time that may be. You can rent a car, if that suits your fancy, but there are other modes of transportation, too. Strolling around town is an easy alternative to driving everywhere. Bicycles can easily be rented, too, if you’re looking for a way to get from Point A to Point B while breathing in the fresh air from the sea. You should plan at least a little of your trip to be on water, whether you explore the idea of kayaking or head out on a boat tour.
There are festivities, food, and fun all over town as the holidays approach. Saturday, November 28th, we welcome the Venice Holiday Parade, which is in its 40th year. When Saturday, December 5th rolls around, get ready to catch Santa as he glides down the intercoastal waterways, spreading good cheer and welcoming the Christmas season as it draws near. The Venice Christmas Boat Parade is a favorite area attraction, lighting up the trees and sparkling against the ripples in the water. The annual Christmas Tree Lighting will take place this year on Saturday, December 12th at 6:00 pm, so be sure to swing by if you’ll be in town. The Downtown Christmas Walk is one of the spectacular events that shouldn’t be missed.
