The Venetian Causeway connects the islands to the mainland and provides a great way to spend the day seeing the area. It replaced the original wooden causeway back in 1925 and now makes a great place to jog, bike and walk your dogs. Grab a cafe latte and take a stroll. Biscayne Island and San Marco Island comprise this area and each is technically part of Miami and Miami Beach, respectively.
With Miami’s mainland and Miami Beach just a quick trip over the bridges, you’ll be in close range to whatever kind of nightlife it is you’re after. But choose to stay in the Venetian Islands and you’re likely looking at a casual, low-key night likely in the privacy of your own mansion, sipping cocktails in your own infinity-edge pool. Hey, that’s not so bad either.
Where To Live:
What happens when you want an island that doesn’t exist? You build one, of course. Venetian Islands may be artificial by nature’s standards, but as a resident you’ll feel just like you’ve crash landed on your own private island retreat. That said, there’s a definite feel of the suburbs here in Venetian Islands where life is slower if not cheaper. A typical home here cost millions, but you’ll be looking at single-family homes ranging from large to mansion, with all the bells and whistles. Try a three bedroom for $10 million or a seven bedroom for $35 million.
