This is definitely one of the places why I am so in love with this city. It is like Venice or Amsterdam in the middle of LA. Just breathtaking! Calm and romantic, so different from the loud and hectic typical LA, it is is absolutely a must visit while there. The most perfect time to go is sunset or dawn.

Much smaller, but delightful, with little ducks and all! The sidewalks are clean and well maintained, the water clear, and each of the homes lining the canals are different from one another.

If you're staying near Venice, don't miss the walk around the canals. They are absolutely stunning. We travelled here while staying nearby, and it was well worth the effort. The canals have quite a history and have been around for close to a century now. Enter at the Main Canal and then snake your way up each side of the... More

This is a nice change from the usual hustle and bustle of LA. It's a nice quiet walk along the canals with lots of old beautiful houses. Not a very extensive walk and wouldn't exactly say it's worth a visit unless at this end of Venice beach anyways

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

Very peaceful, there are beatiful gardens, perfect for walk after the lunch and closed to Venice beach. Nice place

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.

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.
