Latest Trip

Our most recent visit to Venice Beach here in Florida was a brief trip due to a thunderstorm. Thunderstorms here in Florida kill about 9 people every year so make sure you head for shelter and leave the beach at the first sign of Lightning. Sharky's On the Pier and the Venice Fishing Pier are two highlights of a trip to this beach along with the beautiful sunsets of course. If you are a dog lover you can head a little further down the beach to Paw Park Beach and enjoy the sand a surf wtih your four legged friends. Venice beach also boasts about being the Shark Tooth Capital of Florida because many people come here to find Megladon teeth and other kinds of shark teeth. Personally, I have not found a single shark tooth on this beach but I have found several hundred on Nokomis and Englewood beach. Regardless, I will continue to look everytime I visit Venice.
