“Not the Venice we think it will be -- kind of smelly and dodgy.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is not a nice place to walk around. It's close to questionable areas in Vencie. So it's not really safe. Go to Naples in Long Beach for a cute canals walk. Much safer and more fun.

“fun walk away from the beach road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

it's nice to take a walk through the canals and get out at the other side to come back through the beach. the canals are very nice, the houses are amazing and all that is left is to be jealous of those who live here everyday. parking in one of the small streets just before the canals start is easy, especially on Sunday. if look for the set from "californications" it's not on the canals at all... walk for a few minutes to the other side of the beach and find hank's old place in 26 Brooks Ave, and Karen place with bill on 2420 McKinley Ave.

“Nice evening stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Most of the residents know they are living in a fishbowl so they keep the lights on and drapes open in the early evenings. Nice evening stroll on a mild autumn night holding hands with your sweatheart and see all the houses that look like they belong on Architectural Digest.

great walking the canals and just admiring the homes. Nice to dream of eventually owning one of these homes. Great picture opportunities!

Been living here for years... It's calming, peaceful... An oasis from the wildness of Venice... charming and well gorgeous!
