Fly Into Venice Beach and Sharky’s Restaurant on the Pier

Today’s destination is beautiful Venice Beach Florida. Flying into Venice Municipal Airport (Airport Code VNC) Only 61 Nautical Miles from Ridge Landing Airpark, which means its less then an hour flight, I would suggest multiple passes to take in Venice Beaches over the top Florida Beauty with long runs of sandy beaches equipped with some of the finest dining and night life Florida has to offer. Sharky’s Restaurant is the dining establishment of topic for today and comes highly suggested from about everywhere you can look! in season there is live entertainment every night!

Sharky’s History

In 1986, the Novacks and Pachotas won the bid to convert the site of an old, dilapidated beach concession into a restaurant, located at the base of the original fishing pier. Sharky’s officially opened on February 10, 1987 with only 78 seats and a host of hungry folks , and has been serving the best food of the west coast of Florida ever since.

Directions From Venice Municipal Airport to Sharky’s Restaurant

Today’s directions are not very hard literally get out of your plane and walk West to the beach it is less then a mile from the airport.
