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.

Venice is lovely. A lovely landscape. You don't feel crowded as one would in other places. Everyone I have met has been very friendly. The weather was a huge draw for me. No more cold weather. As I understand it, the winters in Venice Florida are beautiful! The restaurants are fantastic! I am very close to all of the beaches, and can easily commute to Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, Tampa, and Clearwater.
My grandma lives in Venice and I love visiting her and the town! The people are all so nice and friendly. My brother spent one year attending the high school and he really enjoyed it and made friends easily. The school system is great. It is a town made up mostly of older residents, so activity is found mostly in nearby towns and cities. The one thing I would change is that I wish more younger people lived there. I feel like a lot of the older residents are lonely and really enjoy when I visit my grandma and visit them too (not in a nursing home either). There's a lot to do from shopping to visiting the beach. All the restaurants serve excellent food and the wait staff is always very friendly. Overall, Venice is a great place to live or vacation.
