Venice and North Port

Venice

Venice is nestled along Florida’s southwestern coast. The waters of the Gulf of Mexico moderate the temperatures of summer and winter for a perfect year-round climate. The scenic stretch of Sarasota County coast line basks in the sun most of the year and temperatures seldom drop below 70 degrees.
Fourteen miles of white sand beaches lure sun worshipers and searchers for sea shells and the prehistoric shark teeth which have earned Venice the title of Sharks Tooth Capital of the world. Every April, Venice draws thousands of visitors to its superb waterfront with the community-wide Sharks Tooth and Seafood Festival. Venice, a water wonderland, enjoys the Gulf , bays, and other waterways that offer opportunities for swimming, surfing, fishing, and boating – a constant source of recreation for residents and visitors alike.

Venice is one of the few cities on Florida’s west coast that is not separated from the Gulf by a barrier island. Preserving the original character of Venice, the city created the Historic Venice District and an Architectural Review Board to ensure that new construction or modification of existing buildings conform to the northern Italian Renaissance style of the city’s original architecture. 

 

North Port

North Port is a city in the southern most part of Sarasota County, Florida, just south of Venice. The population was 57,357 at the 2010 census. It is part of the North Port–Bradenton–Sarasota Metropolitan Statistical Area. It was originally developed by General Development Corporation as the northern or Sarasota County part of its Port Charlotte development. General Development Corporation dubbed it North Port Charlotte, and it was incorporated under that name through a special act of the Florida Legislature in 1959. By referendum in 1974 the city’s residents approved a change to simply North Port to proclaim its separate identity.
