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

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!
