Venice Florida Area Communities
South Venice
Just beyond the Venice city limits, South Venice with 18,000 residents, is conveniently located on U.S. 41, also known was the Tamiami Trail. It is a center for shopping and light manufacturing, as well as the site of Manatee Community College's South Campus and the new Venice Health Park.
Nokomis
A fishing village with elegant residential neighborhoods, shopping, and all the amenities of today's lifestyles, Nokomis lies north of Venice and stretches east from Casey Key to I-75. The many miles of shoreline along the Gulf, the Intracoastal Waterway, Lyons, Dona, and Roberts Bays and several creeks make this is a water-oriented community.
Laurel
Taking its name from the trees that once grew abundantly in the area, Laurel is a small, largely residential community between Nokomis and Osprey. With its own post office, a number of churches and small businesses, Laurel is an attractive place to call home.
Osprey
Northernmost of the Venice area communities, Osprey is the oldest. History can be traced from Historic Spanish Point, through pioneer homestead buildings of the late 1800s, to the early 20th century gardens of Mrs. Potter Palmer. Several small businesses serve residents of comfortable older neighborhoods as well as an elegant golf club community. This is also the home of the Oscar Scherer State Recreational Center.
