Venice is a special So Cali coastline location, and walking the canal streets is so unique. Enjoy the walk, then head to the pier and walk north along the boardwalk toward Santa Monica. During the summer and fall months it is so amazingly fun and...More

The canals are indeed a "hidden gem" but I wouldn't make a separate trip just for this. It's a nice walk and house-gazing is very fun, but that's about it. Pro tip: The water is public property so you can drop a paddle board in...More

If you want to walk, bike, or drive to see Venice canals east of Los Angeles, CA, this is your place. The canals are small with cute little bridges and roads. Worth a drive thru if you have time while in Venice Beach, CA.

Venice Beach is a super crowded and at times, overbearing place. The canals promise nice views, shade, and few people. It's a nice walk with beautiful houses and bridges. It's a must see.

Subdivided in the early 20th century, originally small single family houses on a half dozen canals, with a central business agora behind the beach. Now pricey residential. Sidewalks along the canals in front of the homes and over the bridges allow visitors to dream about...More

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.
