Top Ten Tuesday: Sha Nay-Nay's list

Our intern from Venice High School, Naomi, has a younger perspective on our fair city of Venice. Here are her suggestions for things to do in Venice, Florida for the younger set.

#10. Late night Taco Bell: Taco Bell is one of the many teen "hang outs" of Venice. After any Venice High School event you can always find numerous teens getting a quick bite to eat or just hanging out with friends. Plus, its not that expensive!

#9. Longboard on the Intercoastal: Whether you prefer longboarding or just walking, the Intercoastal Waterway is a great for a stroll before sunset! Its has a really pretty scenery with the water just feet below you. You get all the feeling of being on the beach, but with sidewalk under your feet instead!

#8. Shop at Nifty Nic Nacs: This kooky store will surely knock your socks off. We have everything from Elvis memorabilia to Spiderman Bobbleheads! Theres something for everyone here! With a pleasant staff (myself included!),  you'll surely feel welcome.

#7. Get a marshmallow coke at The Soda Fountain: The Soda Fountain offers a blast from the past while serving up some American Classics, but also serves old fashioned sodas. Marshmallow Coke has to be my favorite! Its like a creamier and sweeter coke classic. They also have many other types of flavors you can add. If you feel like taking a risk try the Graveyard.

#6. Kilwins: While walking down Venice Avenue take a stop in this tasty shop where you can find delectible treats and ice cream of all sorts! You can even watch as they make the treats through the front window!

#5. See a play at Venice Theatre: Venice has such a great theatre filled with amazing and talented people. Every show I have seen has been spectacular! It's definitely worth seeing a show!

#4. Play volleyball on Venice Beach: I'm always playing beach volleyball with my friends! Its such a blast. If you're on the beach and are feeling up to it, ask to join a match, theres always people playing, so you never have to worry about having enough players!

#3. Jet Ski!: For all the adrenaline junkies out there, jet skiing in the Gulf of Mexico off Venice's gorgeous beaches has to be on the top of your to do list! Its a blast especially when you get out to the Gulf, the waves are just choppy enough, you just gotta be ready for it!

#2. Hang out at the beach(es): How could you not? Just going to the beach to catch up on some rays or swim is the perfect way to spend a lazy day. Just get there early, or there might not be any parking! If you're feeling adventurous you could try a little skim boarding or build some sand castles! If thats not enough for you, take a walk on the wild side and try out shark fishing.

#1. Sushi from Bushido: If you like sushi, and Japanese food, Bushido is a great place to catch lunch here in lovely Venice. The food is always fresh and delicious and it's always a pleasant experience.
