Spotlight on the Venetian Islands
The artificial islands, Biscayne Island, San Marco Island, San Marino Island, Di Lido Island, Rivo Alto Island, and Belle Isle make up the exclusive and private Venetian Islands located in Biscayne Bay between Miami and Miami Beach. The Venetian Islands also includes an uninhabited island that most residents use for family picnics, Flagler Monument Island, a memorial built in 1920 to honor Henry Flagler, a railroad pioneer.
Originally when the Venetian Islands project was proposed, it was suppose to be much larger, and was meant to include another causeway, “The Drive of the Campanili,” which would connect Hibiscus Island with Di Lido Island. However, due to the aftermath of the 1926 Miami Hurricane and the end of the 1920s Florida Land boom, the Shoreland Company, the company in charge of the project, went bankrupt in 1927, thus the causeway project was scraped. However, in 1925, the original wooden causeway, was replaced by a series of arch drawbridges and was renamed the Venetian Causeway. The Venetian Causeway is a popular area for joggers, bike riders, dog walkers, and residents looking or a serene and safe place to take a calming stroll.
