    Loved this quiet corner of Venice. We were there very early at 8am and so the walkways very quiet, only a few joggers and dog walkers around, the houses were truly gorgeous with cute gardens and decorations. Great for the ‘which one would you buy?’ game. The developer has wanted to recreate the feel of Venice, Italy, which is a bit of a stretch but I get what he was trying to do. I definitely left with house envy! We probably spent about 45 minutes wandering until we had seen enough.

    The hipster street in Venice beach has many good restaurants and shops. It seems a lot of Scandinavian influence. Many really good places to eat healthily.

    ALIVE. This place is definitely alive. It was full of vendors and storefronts. Definitely a place to see. I love the rental bikes (through Lyft and other services) and the bike lanes. We were able to bike from Venice Beach to Santa Monica pier!

    A great landmark unfortunately the place was closed for filming so it was not in use but maybe without anyone you enjoy more the architecture and the stone/cement/material of the construction: shining grey lunar landscape.
    Very worth the walk

    It’s mostly quite tacky but it’s fun nevertheless. You see all walks of life when you walk here. From cool street bands to many many crazy people doing weird things. Fewer bars and restaurants than you might think.

    Such a treasure. Go experience this and leave inspired. The owners are there, willing and eager to answer any questions. They don’t rush you around the house. Make your reservations so that the traffic is controlled. Neighborhood is quiet, so respect the neighbors.

    As piers go, the Venice pier is not particularly remarkable. There are nice restaurants at its base on Washington Street, but there is nothing on the pier itself. It's an easy and mostly level walk. The thing that gives the pier an extra star is that once you get out on it you have a sweeping view from Malibu to Ranch Palos Verdes. That's a whole lot of legendary SoCal beach to soak in. Don't miss the pier when you visit the Boardwalk and Canals.

    It’s a phenomenal piece of public art at the entrance to the Chiat-Day block that in fact it is known colloquially as the Binoculars Building.

    Unsurprisingly Frank Gehry was the architect and completion was in the early 2000s. Entrance to the car park and for pedestrians is between the lenses.

    This is a lovely mural. It's huge. A work of art for sure. It's not worth making a trip to Venice just to see it but it is worth reflecting upon if you are there. The thing I love about it is that it shows Venice's arched building facades from years past that are all but gone. You get a sense of Venice's rich history that only enhances its uniqueness today.

    We thought that we would do a little bit of walking at the Wetlands (see some birds). Did not really happen as there were not great signs to inform you of where to go. We ended up driving around, parking and viewing a few birds. Disappointing.

    This is an attraction that is easy to miss. My recommendation is "Don't". Don't miss it that is. Even though Venice is gentrified and moving away from its rougher later days, the area is still an explosion of sound, color, flavor and character. During your Venice visit take a few minutes to enjoy this constantly evolving artistic expression and let it round out for you the wonder that is Venice.

    Vast in size it’s a powerful modern version of Birth of Venus by Botticelli.

    In addition to the essential elements of the renaissance work, the artist Rip Cronk has added charming detail that resonate with the locality of Venice.

    These include swimmers, surfers, drums, walkers and a gondolier.

    A figure looks out at us in a defiant rock-star stance. In bright vibrant colours, it caught our attention as we passed by.

    Created by muralist Rip Cronk in 1991, its timing possibly coincided with the release of the film The Doors by Oliver Stone.

    An extensive revamp of the art work was undertaken by Mr. Cronk in 2012.
