Over 100 years ago Abbot Kinney designed part of this city to actually resemble Venice Italy, including the infamous canals. Although, it looks nothing like the real Venetian canals, this area is adorable and very serene. Lined with picturesque homes, manicured front yards and gardens, it’s a spot worth exploring on your way to Venice beach and to take some pictures.
It was nice walking around, enjoying the beautiful weather and lovely houses. And most of the home owners are very friendly and welcoming. You can easily visit Venice several times and never know the canals are there. They are tucked away in a strictly residential neighborhood.
