A lovely place to check out, stroll around, take in the sight and end with a nice glass of wine near the beach!

This beautiful area makes you dream of living there. The canals are picture perfect and the homes are breathtaking.

You don't get to experience LA if you don't visits the canals. The architecture, the vibe - it's whimsical <3

We rented a house in Venice and walking the canals was a fun stroll admiring the million dollar houses!

Lovely walkways and bridges allow you to meander around the neighborhood. Walk slowly and check out all the well kept gardens, particularly the succulents. An eclectic array of architecture adds to the character. It was a nice quiet refuge from the business of the beach. It is a residential area so shhhh and retain the serenity for visitors and residents... More

A friend told me to venture over to explore this neighborhood when visiting Venice Beach. The walk wasn't too far, and my teenage daughter and I were happy we had made the effort to see this unique little area.

Went after breakfast so it was so peaceful - these are a delight .Oh to own one of those houses! Abbott Kinney is a short stroll so head for a cool coffee, a really fab place in Venice to eat

A short distance from the noice and loud music along the Venice beach, this is a wonderful sidestep that cannot be missed.

It's hard to believe that just a short walk from the colour and noise of Venice Beach is this peaceful gem. How lucky are people to live here! We walked along some of the canals and over the quaint bridges, soaking in the quiet atmosphere. It's definitely worth stepping away from the beach to visit this stunning location.

Some of the homes you walk past are cute and eclectic, but most are new out-of-proportion tear-down remodels squeezed onto these tiny lots. The canals can be more mud than water, depending on the tide. I'd rather walk along the ocean at Venice Beach.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
