A must see, when visiting Venice are the many piers. We saw the pelicans and dolphins every night at Casey Pier, in the Venice Area.The sunsets were marvelous too.We met so many different people there each night from all over the USA.Some told us they were there for 3 - 4 months to get away from the hard winters of home. It is a lovely climate...more
