We are coming to Florida in late May early June for 3 weeks, staying in a villa north of Venice so we are nearer Nokomis than Venice. Any advice on beaches restaurants tourist attractions fishing (keen fishermen in family) would be very helpful.

We have stayed in Venice before so fairly familiar with area, but didn't visit Nokomis beach, or areas around there.

Many thanks.

1. Re: Nokomis

I was in Nokomis and Venice last winter and loved it. In Nokomis, right along Route 41, there are many restaurants. Captain Eddies, corner of 41 and Colonia Road, is excellent and specializes in seafood. On the water heading out to Casey Key is Pops Sunset Grill, a local hangout and you'll see plenty of waterfowl. Pelican Alley is next door. The Saltwater Cafe, On 41, is in a small shopping center where there is a Publix grocery store. It's a really nice restaurant, great specials and excellent seafood. Also in the same area of Route 41 is Anita's. It's great for "home cooking" and for breakfast. You'll notice the parking lot is full in the mornings and evenings. Head over to the Venice pier for Sharky's restaurant to watch the sunsets as you have your dinner. You can eat outside on the pier or inside. Also, lots of fishermen trying their luck at the end of the pier (it's a big pier) and the beach is lovely. In downtown Venice there is a Chamber of Commerce, again in a shopping center with a Publix store. They can give you lots of advice.
