Venice, Los Angeles
100 years ago tobacco magnate Abbot Kinney tried to create a community fashioned after Venice, Italy. What remains of his vision is a charming network of canals, narrow pedestrian wooden bridges and lushly landscaped footpaths coving eight blocks in Venice. Cozy and eclectic, glimpse the beauty of the canals by walking over the narrow pedestrian bridges. Just north of Washinton Blvd., east of the Venice Pier; park on Dell Avenue, and then walk straight ahead to the canals
Venice Beach is the coolest place of the city. I love it. The beach is great, but the beach boulevard is the real attraction of this part of the town. Street artists like painters, musicians and others are always there. I love to take a look at all the fascinating shops in Venice. Stylish clothing, latest fashion, art, tattoo studios and some alternative stores. Great. Of course, the usual tourist stuff, too. And then there are the basketball courts. Streetball at its best. I played on many courts, but the ones at Venice have a pretty high level, probably the highest I´ve seen so far. Some scenes of the movie 'White men can´t jump' were filmed there.
OH I do like this area !
If your a single woman, live on the canal and rich. I'm 54 and sound like Sean Connery.
