Fantastic area to walk around. You should not miss it. They are listed on the National Register of Historic Place and they deserve this designation. You need to walk the sidewalks, cross the bridges and really discover the neighborhood. All the houses are delightfully different, a mixture of architectural design. The canals are the perfect settings for all of them.... More

Super charming canals. A quick walk from Venice beach. It feels like a small town away from Los Angeles. Some people even have boats tied to their back yard on the canal. It is mostly private houses and besides the bridges and designated walkways there isn't anywhere else you can really walk. I would stop by here white visiting Venice... More

just off the beach about 2 streets back between santa monica and venice beach piers. The history of these canals are interesting. Walk along the Grand walkway and then the little walkways over the bridges. The houses along here are gorgeous. Ducks and boats in calm, clear shallow waters. Very peaceful and quiet. It's not a huge area and can... More

I had read about these prior to our L.A. trip and was intrigued. It's worth it if you are driving to the beach nearby. These walkways are just south of Venice Beach and you may find on street parking nearby and then walk through the canal walkways to the beach. They extend several blocks and the canals have 'docks' with... More

It's a nice, quiet respite from a day at the beach. Some nice views and unique houses. The water was very low when we visited, so it wasn't as nice as it could have been. Overall, it's worth a few minutes.

Pair the canal walk with the beach walk and you have a good combination. The canals are more sedate and calming. Definitely worth a visit!

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
