Ocean Sands condos

We will be spending 2 -3 months this winter at a condo at Ocean Sands. Has anyone had experience with this area? It seems awfully quiet. My husband will be playing bridge a lot, so I am trying to find activities for me. I enjoy walking, biking, reading, historical and cultural activities, and classical music. Sitting on the beach is ok for a short time, but not every day! Any suggestions about what to do or where to go? Also, if you have any experience with the Ocean Sands complex, I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Thank you so much!!!!

You can rent a bike a ride on the Legacy Trail.

There is the Venice Historical Society in downtown Venice as well as the Art Center.

Downtown Venice has a variety of charming shops and restaurants.

Since you will be here in high season, there will be all kinds of activities/art shows etc going on in the area.

this is the website for the local paper and has a section for entertainment events. Every Thursday there is the "Ticket" section.

Sarasota has museums, parks, Historical Society and many things to do.

You won't be bored and i assume you will have a car to get around. Lots to explore...

You will love Venice!!!! I go annually for a short time in winter. Try out the yoga on the beach each morning. And be sure to take a day trip to Mayakka State Park and take an airboat ride to see gators and more gators. The park is located in nearby Sarasota. Downtown is so charming and lots of unique shops and fun thrft stores. I also enjoy a day trip to Punta Gorda to visit Fisherman's Wharf (a neat dining/shopping area) and Siesta Key is a must for the most beautiful beach and sand. Try out Sharkey's on the Venice Pier at sunset for a fun, true-Florida experience -- the most beautiful sunsets ever. Think Jimmy Buffett but with an older crowd :)

Enjoy - you will want to return Venice to Vagain and again.
