We took a bus to Venice. The bus stop was really far from the Canals and it was hot. So many locals couldn't direct us to the Canals Walkway which was surprising. What beautiful homes and gardens. It's a short walk to Venice Beach from there.

After visiting the filthy, grimy, disgusting Venice Beach take a stroll to the Venice Canals walkways. I promise you you will not be disappointed. Beautiful, clean relaxing walkways connected by numerous bridges. It is a must see. You will not believe such a lovely place exists so close to the very dirty Venice Beach.

It feels like a million miles away from Los Angeles. As different as night from day. I love this little community with its canals and small homes and little bridges. I just love this place.

We didn't spend a lot of time here as we were waiting for our flight from LAX, but took the opportunity to stroll around here. The homes were close together, but still pretty large. Not much lawn, but the number of roof-top patios made up for it. Many varied styles of homes, which created a nice eclectic hodge-podge community. Like... More

After walking along the beach, i expected the Venice canals to be similar, full of tourists and a bit tacky. How wrong could I be. We spent a good hour walking around the canals, looking at the beautiful homes and hardly saw another person. It's very tranquil, peaceful and pretty. Definitely take time to wonder around, take some pictures and... More

It's a wonderful contrast to the happening Venice Boardwalk. The area has been featured in many movies and it's a nice stroll in the area.

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
