How about a day spent at the beach digging up sharks' teeth? Venice has been called the "Shark Tooth Capital of the World" because sharks' teeth of all types and sizes can often be found washed up on beaches throughout the area. Sharks' teeth can range from an eighth of an inch to 3 inches and sometimes even bigger. A rare and valuable find is a fossilized tooth of the prehistoric megalodon, which was more than 60 feet long and had teeth as big as an adult hand. When you're ready to retreat to dry land, the Sarasota area has you covered. There's miniature golf, arcades, biking trails and theme adventures for a day of fun that will bring out the kid in everyone. More interested in communing with nature? Stop by the sanctuaries, gardens and facilities that will let you meet and learn about alligators, exotic birds and more. No matter what you are looking to do with the family, the Sarasota area provides activities and excitement for the entire household.
