This is a lovely walk, peaceful and picturesque. It strikes a refreshing contrast to the lively and colourful hustle bustle of vibrant Venice.

It's lovely to walk around the canals near Venice Beach and a nice respite from the busy boardwalk. It's probably not worth making a trip here just to walk around the canals, but a nice way to spend some time if you're already in the area. It's fun to look at all the different houses and explore at your own... More

I went with mi bike so it was a really nice ride getting there, but the canals itself are nothing special. I would only recommend to go there if you are in the zone or if you are going to see more places near.

This is not a touristic area. It is a quiet area, not as crowded as the Venice Beach area. The tour is well worth it and show different side of Los Angeles than the

Just a short walk from Venice beach you will find the canal walkway. Beautiful houses, gardens and tranquility of the water. A lovely stroll after lunch.

The Venice Canals are worth a visit when the area is not busy. You can take a peaceful stroll and experience a totally different aspect of Venice. The homes and gardens are interesting and it is and OK way to spend some time.

So peaceful and different from the beach boardwalk it is a must-see. It will change your idea about Venice beach area. Then you may want to extend your walk to the Abbot Kinney bld where you have plenty of options for drinks, eats and shopping. You will be nicely surprised.

We found this place when searching for stroller walk friendly places. I don't remember the website who made the recommendation, and that's a good thing. Whoever recommended this should be drawn here on foot and forced to smell the water. It's pretty foul and you can tell from a distance. This place, isn't worth putting in comparison with the real...

It's a good walk but basically you are walking behind someone else's house that are built along the canals. The canals seem to be drying out because of the drought but this walkway isn't my cup of tea. I'd rather walk by the beach

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood 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.
