Owned and maintained by National Data Buoy Center, this station is located on the beautiful Venice Fishing Pier. We had an opportunity to visit the location of the station and the city of Venice, FL. My wife, daughter, and I stayed at the Quarterdeck Resort. We highly recommend this property. The managers were just awesome. The facility was small and quiet. We enjoyed the condo, the pool, and the beach. If you desire accomodations that aren't of the high-rise (packed in like sardines) variety, then the Quarterdeck is your place! I'll post more pictures of the Quarterdeck and the beach later.
