Enjoyed the Venice canals they were so pretty and the little chocolate box houses most fascinating. I hadn't realised this little treasure was tucked in behind Venice beach and it's eclectic mix of people.

With our friend who lives in Venice we did our own tour. Since he lived in Amsterdam for years he could understand that this is a pretty odd sightseeing tour for Sutch people in that big city of LA. It shows the many faces the city has and how different areaa are. Also what a city can donig developments are... More

I recently stayed a couple of nights in Venice beach, waking up one morning to a very grey & cloudy sky I decided to go in search of these canals, having read about them. After a bit of trouble finding them, I was pleasantly surprised at what I did find, the canal area was very pretty and very quant. Def... More

so glad we managed to find these canals. it was only by chance we came acorss a pathway that led into them. People didn't seem to know where they were. Perhaps its a bit of a secret and I can see why, because you are walking past peoples gardens. So pretty.

Wandering through the narrow, cute bridges and walkways, we saw many nice bungalows with well kept gardens. There were also a few canoes on the canal. We also came across many joggers and owners walking their dogs, enjoying this tranquil patch of paradise. After the walk, we headed to the Cold Stone shop just across the road to have icecream....

This little piece of Venice in California is a must see! An oasis of small pedestrian bridges over channels, in front of beautiful Californian architecture, flowering and fruit trees. Everyone owns a paddleboat of some kind (row, canoe, kayak). Pretty amazing.

Venice beach itself is very tawdry, hardly worth a walk through. The canals are beautiful and very well kept, but don't take more than a half hour to walk through. Hardly worth the $25 to park (this was on a Sunday afternoon, perhaps cheaper during week or off season?) I would come back with out of town visitors only if... More

We were so happy to find these canals!! Off the well-beaten Venice Beach Boardwalk path, we found these winding trails refreshing. Lots of picture ops and very enjoyable.
