We just were trying to buy some time before our next event and we took a Lyft over to walk as it was close to our hotel. Just a nice place to see and something free to do. If you like the beauty of nature,...More

The Canals near Venice Beach are unusual - it's a number of homes built on canals, with most having a dock to the canal. The "Walkway" is mostly a sidewalk in front of each home, with the occasional bridge to get over the canal and...More

This is a lovely residential area. However, don't think of living there unless you have lots of money. Real estate is very pricey. Still, a beautiful place to pass some time.

Happened on this area more by chance but we were very pleasantly surprised with the whole area. Lovely place to stroll and enjoy the many varied houses and quiet. Highly recommend.

Our grandsons (14 & 17) wanted to see the sights of Venice Beach so we included walking the canals. One of our grandsons is interested in architecture, so this was of particular interest to him. Our July 4th outing was crowded on the beach, but...More

Spent 2 days in Venice while waiting for a Cruise. Loved every moment. No traffic. Quiet friendly and romantic. Winding narrow cobblestone streets throughout. Food and drinks at nearly every corner. Lots of history. Very charming. One of my faves in Europe.

The canals of Venice are one block off a main street(Washington Blvd) but are probably unknown to most people driving by. You walk by lovely home fronting on the canal...it is a lovely walk and is, of course, free.

These beautiful canals are located in Venice (not too far from the boardwalk). The canals are surrounded by small paths that you can walk along and take in the beautiful sights of the canals and houses. Great for photos. Allow 1 - 2 hours max.

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

The walkways are narrow and there are some stairs that you take to cross bridges. A stroller is possible but might be inconvenient.

No it's all residential. You can walk and it's well worth it.

I am sure there tour companies that offer tours but as this is a residential neighborhood I am not sure large groups would be allowed. If you have the car you can park near one of the entrances and just walk around. It is... More
