As Chairman of the Board for the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our paradise on the Gulf. With miles of beautiful beaches, intracostal waterways, bike trails, and breathtaking sunsets, it is no wonder Venice is constantly ranked as one of the nation’s top destinations to visit, vacation and call home.

While you are here be sure to take an evening stroll through our historic downtown area. In doing so, you will find dining and shopping, with smiling faces and friendly folks, in a city that is rich with a unique history and a thriving cultural scene.

For over 90 years, the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce has been promoting business growth and success, while cultivating a vibrant and engaged community. Through our Better Business Department, we insure advocacy, giving you confidence in your choices. Our Chamber also serves as our area’s visitor center, complete with area maps and a knowledgeable staff; we aim to make your experience one that will fulfill all of your needs and expectations.

Whether you are looking for a vacation destination, a place to relocate and raise a family, start a thriving business, or retire with your toes in the sand, you will like what Venice has to offer.

I am excited that you are here, and welcome you to this amazing place that we call home. I hope you will let us know if there is any way we can make your visit more enjoyable.
