Hard to believe this maze of canals and beautiful homes is just a few blocks from the eclectic Venice Beach Boardwalk! It was so neat to explore all the streets and paths and admire the homes and gardens along the canals. Don't miss!

This is a great area to just wander around and get lost. There are lots of great houses and bridges spread around several canals. This is definitely worth an hour or so to explore.

If you are going to the Venice Beach area, the canals are a must see. Have nothing to do with Venice beach and its craziness. It will be quiet, beautiful and a lot to see. You can walk most of the canal area.

Since everyone feels the need to visit Venice Beach it's night to escape the crowds and craziness by walking a few blocks east and strolling the canals. Nice houses with beautiful gardens and bridges take you away from the beach and transform you to a little bit of "Venice". It's a nice walk and very peaceful!

Only 5 minutes walk from the chaos of Venice beach front, this is the most amazing beautiful calm little place. You won't get lost - it's only 4 parallel mini-canals - but there are lots of fascinating houses, and you can walk around all of it. Hardly anyone else doing the walk. We parked in a side street, and it... More

My friend took me on a walking tour through just part of the canals walkway. She said even after living there several years, she could still get lost walking through them but if you have the time, it is worth it. The houses are beautiful. Wonderful plantings, and we saw water fowl, butterflies, and hummingbirds. No other word describes it... More

If you are planning on visiting Venice Beach, take an hour at the end of the day and do the Venice Canals Walkway. Walking around canals and bridges and see wonderful houses with their private gardens is a very refreshing option after being in the "crazy" Venice Beach. If peaceful, tranquility and architecture is a must for you this is... More

A beautiful neighborhood near Venice Beach with lovely houses along the canal. Difficult to imagine small boats parked near the houses in the center of the city. You can easily spend an hour exploring this beautiful area.

Just a beautiful, awesome place. I want to live here. I'm going to find a way, I swear. Its a bunch of cute houses along quiet, wonderful canals. These people have it made. Go walk around and see how made they have it, you'll be #jelly but happy.

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.
