Totally worth the visit. I never imagined such a beautiful, serene, calm place existed in LA!! Amazing place to spend a nice afternoon/evening. This walkway is just behind Venice beach and can be easily missed if not seen before. Credit to my local friends who discovered it by chance!!

It feels almost like walking in real Venice in Italy. Beautiful and gorgeous gardens lots of flowers. Really narrow paths and bridges but feeling is so great there:) definitely must see experience.

I visited the area and took a walk through the canals. There are bautiful homes surrounding the canals with an interesting mix of eclectic and artsy styles. If you are in the area, it's worthwhile to go.

I had a chance to take in the Venice Canals again and boy-oh-boy, it's amazing what a serious clean-up can do for a neighborhood. This whole area used to be quite unclean and just so hum-drum but now you can take a nice sunset stroll and you can actually see sea creatures in the water. And the homes are just... More

Tucked away from the busy Venice beach area are these wonderful canals,so quiet and peaceful fronted by lovely houses with immaculate gardens.Picture post card lovely and well worth a visit if only to get away for a few minutes form the noise and bustle just a few hundred yards away.You will need a map to find them or ask one...

There is nothing spectacular about this place. We visited in the afternoon, so it is possible that it is better at night, but I doubt it. You may wish to skip the place. Not worth it

The Venice Canals are beautiful! Such a pretty and enjoyable walk along the path and across the many bridges! Everyone's property is different with unique homes and different flowering tropical plants and flowers in bloom. It was gorgeous! Well worth the time!

I first found out about this place on TripAdvisor, and couldn't wait to visit there. My parents and I first went to Venice beach, which was too crowded and not clean, we were kind of disappointed. Since Venice Canal is only a few miles away from the beach, we didn't hold our hopes high for it. I drove into this... More

The Venice Canals are breathtaking! Photo's do NOT do this beautiful place justice. Its so peaceful and tranquil. I bought a little bottle of champagne from the liquer store next to the canals and walked through the canals NEVER FEELING HAPPIER. I found a place to sit and put my feet in the cool water, listening to Fiona Apple on... More
