Biking & Cycling in Venice
Venice and Sarasota County offer miles of wonderful biking trails. One of our guest’s favorite is the Legacy Trail,an 11 mile long bike path, that was built on a former railway. Away from the traffic you roll through wonderful landscape, f.i. through the Oscar Scherer Statepark. You can go to the starting point at the Historic Train Depot in Venice by bike directly from Villa Happy Gator. Just cross Shamrock Park and ride along the Venetian Waterway. It will take you only half an hour.
