As locals we are anxious to see the construction on Venice Ave. completed because it is keeping many people from coming downtown. It's a shame because the businesses can really use the business with Red Tide in the area. Great restaurants and shopping available here.

The road is under construction making it difficult to get around. There are other places to shop in Venice. I'd suggest going there until this is done. Why the city decided to do this at the beginning of season is hard to understand.

Most of the road was being rebuilt which meant the little shops were difficult to get to. However while quirky, the shops were not that attractive. Not sure what is historic about the place either.

So here’s the thing...the entire historic main shopping area is under construction right now and it appears many restaurants and businesses have taken this opportunity to close durability g this time. Perhaps for their own renovations and perhaps for a short holiday. Very disappointed.

I have been coming here for years and never tire of the great old main street with all kinds of shops and restaurants and friendly people and a super park across the street and on the way to Venice Beach. Highly recommended

We go every year to chill out and stroll the street. The shops have unique items, and the people are so friendly.

Every once in awhile we'll drive into Venice and stroll thru town, stock up on some olive oils and balsamic vinegarettes (two nice stores on Man St), eat some gelato and have a relaxing evening. Very pretty and fun during Christmas holidays with all the...More

Downtown historical Venice is a very charming place to visit. Nice shops and good places to eat. Would highly recommend a trip to this quaint little town!

Magical at Christmas time with the palm trees decorated and lit up at night. Good shopping at good shops, all the tacky souvenir shops you want, and great selection of restaurants for all tastes and budgets. Friday evenings feature live music in the park
