Boothville-Venice is a former census-designated place (CDP) in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, United States, which includes the unincorporated communities of Boothville, Venice, and Orchid. The population was 2,220 at the 2000 census. For the 2010 census, Boothville-Venice was split into the CDPs of Boothville and Venice.

Boothville is the most populous and northernmost of these communities, all located along Louisiana Highway 23 on the West Bank of the Mississippi River. Boothville is home to the Boothville Heliport, important in helicopter transport for offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. Venice, Louisiana is the town farthest south along Highway 23 within the protection levee. Neighboring Orchid (sometimes considered part of Venice) is outside of the protection levee; it has a boat marina and buildings raised on stilts. The Boothville-Venice area also includes the community of Tidewater, to the west of Orchid on a secondary road; port and petroleum facilities dominate Tidewater, which also has a weather station.
