Each April, Venice, Florida, hosts a Sharks Tooth Festival that draws fossil collectors from all over the country and world. Collectors set up booths near the Venice Fishing Pier to show off (and sometimes sell) these amazing teeth. The great variety of sharks teeth is astounding.
Fabulous fossil collections aside, the Venice Sharks Tooth Festival is just plain fun. Arts, crafts, food and music round out the fossils. It you are interested in attending the Sharks Tooth Festival in April 2012, consider reserving a room at a Venice Florida Bed and Breakfast soon.
Beach walkers often find sharks teeth on the dark-sanded beaches in and around Venice. Another good way to see them is to visit the ancient shark burial ground a few miles off the coast, in the Gulf of Mexico. Scuba divers and snorkelers have made great finds under the water.
Sharks’ teeth aside, Venice is a lovely little town. Vacationers enjoy fishing off the pier, strolling through town, golfing, and tucking into plates of delicious seafood at Sharky’s On The Pier.
Make yourself at home in a Venice Fl Bed and Breakfast, and learn the true meaning of relaxation.
