Nokomis Lyons Bay


Nestled along the Gulf of Mexico on the west coast of Florida about 75 miles south of Tampa, the Venice area is actually five communities of Venice, South Venice, Nokomis, Laurel and Osprey. The incorporated area of Venice has a population of about 17,000, while the greater Venice area totals about 84,000. The city of Venice was incorporated in 1927, and it has a rich history.

Venice is a great place to live and visit because of its friendly atmosphere, parks, miles of beaches and pleasant weather. Moderated by the breezes from the Gulf of Mexico, the summer heat and mild winter chill are more often than not just the right level. The average annual temperature is 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and the waters of the Gulf will rise to a high of 89 degrees in the month of August. The winter low in Gulf waters averages about 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Most of the year's average rainfall of 51 inches comes in the early summer months.

The Venice area boasts more than 14 miles of beaches, from Osprey and Casey Key to Manasota Key. Venice has long been considered the "Sharks Tooth Capital of the World," so it goes without saying there are unlimited opportunities to find any size tooth along the shoreline.

Other recreational advantages of Venice include golf, tennis, swimming, boating, surfing (when the winds are up), picnicking and, of course, hunting for shells.
