Inexpensive Living near the Beach in Venice FL

There is no questions about it that many people are dreaming of living in a warmer climate with easy access to the beach.  Some will also think that they have to give up culture and a diverse lifestyle for living near the beach.

Here in the Venice & Sarasota area on the West coast of Florida, you can have it all. Ventura Village is a gated community with newer resale homes as well as new home construction within 2 miles from the beach and boat launch.  For your convenience, shopping, dining and good medical facilities and hospitals are in less than 2 miles to reach.  You will find a 24/7 Wal-Mart, Publix, Panera’s Bread, Outback Steakhouse, Home Depot, Bealls and many smaller  Restaurants and shops. The Historic Downtown of Venice is just minutes away.  For those of you who embrace the finer things in life, it is only an easy 20 minute drive to Sarasota. Sarasota, also called “the cultural city” on the west coast of Florida, offers anything a big city has to offer with a subtropical flair and a small-town feeling.

If you are an outdoor loving person you will find that Venice has a lot to offer. Whether you are a kayak enthusiast, or like to bike or hike, there are many options for you to explore. See more blogs I wrote on that subject.
