venice canals

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.

  1. Oh yes! I remember it now!!! I remember that on “Pacific Blue”, sometimes they showed some canals… I absolutely forgot about that, if not I would have gone to walk in the area when I was in Venice Beach.

  3. It looks like a lovely place and the water looks extremely clear! I can almost feel the warmth of the sun. 😉

  4. I once knew someone who had a house on the canals. It was nothing more than a shed – 3 tiny rooms wit no insulation. She paid $100,000 for it. This was in the early 90’s. It’s a nice area, but that’s way too much.

    • I do agree, it’s just a lovely place to walk around and nothing much… Yup, I can imagine the house prices there would be so darn high these days.
