Here for a eight month visit to see if this is the place we want to be from October through May. The experience has been a pleasant one, however, I won't be coming back anytime soon. Stayed at a house in The Lakes of Jacaranda and it was an incredibly lovely community with awesome neighbors that we had the pleasure and honor to befriend.
PROS: incredibly clean. Friendly neighbors. Beautiful, clean beaches. Play tennis for nine months with no problem finding a singles or doubles game.
CONS: crowded during peak season. Dead during off season. Not too much to do. Alligators and yes! Crocs. Buggy and exhaustingly humid. Too many craft fairs that can become dull very fast! Boring place to live.

I am from Upstate NY! The most part- people are friendly! There are so many gas station in S. Venice! Like every 2 miles is a gas station from my home! I can find like 4 in three different directions! Stores --more & more are being built!
I guess it is in the person attitude! If you think people are not friendly - they won't be! I think people are! I am so glad for the 🌞 sun! Humidity your going to get it in the South! Suck it up & press on! That is why you go on vacation North in July! LOL
This could be the ideal place to retire but unfortunately, as much as they want to portray protecting their environment and holistic way of life, the business & some residential environmental practices are still very much lacking especially, to our precious and declining turtle & bird population. Many restaurants are still using plastic straws & styrofoam containers. Smokers are still leaving cigarette butts in the sand. By the way, these are just a few items that are killing our overall sea life. It can’t be digested and it gets lodged in their throats that either starve or suffocates them to death...I’d like to see a 180 degree turn around in this town. Our sea life deserves that & then I’d rate it a 10!👍🏼😉
