Being from Venice I fee confident responding to your questions. There is no getting around the issue of age anywhere in Florida....especially during the winter months. Venice indeed has its share of elderly but it also offers a variety of opportunities for the young as well.
There are a number of developments that feature a true commitment to young families: Stoneybrook, Willowbend, Rivendale, etc. to mention a few. One of the features that draws people to the area is its "small town feel" that includes an outstanding quality of life.
Garrett, keep in mind the fact that when children become school age, most often the center of their social and recreational universe is found in and through their school. The educational system is one of the best in the state and when considering Pineview School, recognized as one of the top 10 in the country.
We recommend investing in a visit to Venice so you can come to your own appreciation of what the community is really about. Please feel free to contact us with any other specific questions you may have about the area.

As one of the community amenities, it is important that the clubhouse in any community, regardless of age restrictions, be in tip-top condition, Anything less would produce a serious decrease in property value and desirability.

Hi Debra, My knowledge of the Cape Coral market is limited but I can tell you about Sarasota. Perhaps one of my colleagues on this site can better answer you on Cape Coral.
Sarasota is a beautiful little city with big city ideas and things to do. We are known for our cultural activities as well as our world class beaches. Besides all of the outdoor things you find in all Florida towns, such as tennis, boating, golf and, or, etc; we also have world class art museums and many assortment of theaters (The Asolo, The Florida Studio Theater, The Golden Apple Dinner Theater, The Playerâ€™s Theater. Just to name a few). Just google them along with the Ringling Museum or Ca daâ€™ Zan. The Tibble Learning Center and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. If that is not enough to wet your appetite, look up Mote Marine, Marina Jacks and Sailors Circus and then Ringling College, New College and FSU. Sarasota also sports one of the best beaches in the world, Siesta Key Beach.
The coast of Sarasota is dotted with many little islands each with their own unique charm. The waterways going to and from form some of the most picturesque vistas imaginable. Downtown Sarasota has a plethora of fine restaurants and outdoor eating cafeâ€™s where you can enjoy a cup of coffee or bottle of wine with good friends after work.
You may find that housing is some what more expensive in Sarasota but the market the way it is... We could possibly help you out in your price range.
My best to you wherever you end up.

I would have to say there are three main areas in Sarasota that fit your question. One would be Towles Court near Adams Lane and US 301 another would be Burns Court off of Cocoanut and Burns Ct and the last would be Palm Ave. near main Street. There is another area that is dedicated to Multi Media Art and that would be the Ringling School of Art and Design. All these areas have residential or condo homes available in the general vacinity. I would be happy to forward information and listings from these areas if you will provide me with your email address.
