Experience the Magic of Miami Avenue

Experience the Magic of Miami Avenue

Looking for a place to explore with lots to see? Take a stroll down charming Miami Avenue West. Just a block away from West Venice Avenue, this beautiful, historic downtown street is full of unique boutiques, cafes, restaurants and more. Hanging flower baskets and pots bring a splash of color, so grab a seat on one of the many park benches and take in the scenery.

In addition to shops and cafes, the professional services and diversity of businesses in this part of the historic district make Miami Avenue an important part of downtown. From medical, dental and optometry offices to tailors and co-working business space for lease, there’s much to discover.

The are plenty of free, on-street parking spaces, as well as parking lots. Head toward the iconic street clock tower for the largest parking area. Start your exploration of the avenue from charming Fountain Park, next to the 1920s Burgundy Square building at Nokomis and Miami avenues. Then head west all the way down to Harbor Drive; be sure to pass by the historic First Baptist Church, established in the 1930s.

There are several 1920s buildings on Miami Ave. Take a virtual (or in-person) historic walking tour at visitvenicefl.org/historic-walking-tour/ to learn more about our beautiful city.

Please contact the businesses directly (listed below) to inquire about days/hours of operation due to the varied re-openings. For an interactive map of downtown Venice and a directory of Venice MainStreet Partners, go to VisitVeniceFL.org.

A Collaboration for Re-opening

A Collaboration for Re-opening

Venice MainStreet and the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce have collaborated to form the “Reopening Task Force” to aid businesses in their resumption of business activities during the COVID-19 crisis. The committee is comprised of board members and business leaders from both organizations. A recent tool, completed by the committee and provided to businesses, is an information graphic announcing a business’ plan to abide by safety standards and prioritize the health of staff and customers. We invite the public to look for these notices throughout Venice. CLICK HERE to view.

All businesses are invited to post this tool. If a business is in need of this notice, we encourage them to pick one up at Venice MainStreet or the Chamber of Commerce. Please look for a list of participating businesses posted in the Venice Gondolier (date to be announced soon).

Downtown Looks Forward to Your Safe Return

Downtown Looks Forward to Your Safe Return

A MESSAGE FROM VENICE MAINSTREET CEO, KARA MORGAN
Venice MainStreet works with over 350 businesses and nonprofits throughout Venice. Many of our business partners are in historic downtown Venice on Miami, East and West Venice, and Tampa Avenues. During the mandatory stay at home order for the state of Florida, many of our business partners used that time to make improvements, like painting, inventorying, installing new window displays or ramping up online stores. In the days before reopening, after guidelines were distributed, businesses worked diligently to change their work environments to meet the safety, cleanliness, and social distancing standards to keep their customers and staff safe.

On Monday May 4th, many of those businesses were ready to reopen. Some are taking a few more days, and others are choosing to remain closed longer. Venice MainStreet is proud of the businesses’ efforts, professionalism, and courtesy during these uncertain times. Our organization prides itself on promoting their efforts both in store and online. Yes, many of these businesses have great online stores for shopping as well. Also downtown, the beautiful expanded sidewalks, parks, and outdoor areas are just adjacent to the shopping district and offer a great outdoor experience combined with shopping and dining options.

For everyone who hasn’t been to historic downtown Venice in some time, we look forward to your safe return. Thank you for sticking with us; our business partners and nonprofits are so glad to see you both in person and online. For more information about our business partners during COVID-19 please see visitvenicefl.org/covid-19-local-resource-guide/.
