I love Venice, FL and so do lots of others!

The City of Venice, FL  has always held a very special place in my heart. My great-grandparents settled into Singer Island, Florida after retiring In Pennsylvania and then made the move over to the  Gulf Coast  in the early 50’s. They wanted a place that they would be able to share with their children, grandchildren and the rest is history.  Between the beautiful beaches, great shopping, local, small town feel and incredible people, Venice has it all. To back this up, the city has received numerous accolades from all different angles of interest.
