Venice Canals Tips (7)

Venice Canals

The Venice Canals are located right off 25th street in Venice Beach. It is essentially a neighborhood of houses that line five canals about a quarter mile long each. Along these canals are sidewalks and bridges.
The canals were man made in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as part of his Venice of America plan. he wanted to recreate the appearance and feel of Venice, Italy, in Southern California. T There are four east-west canals (Carroll Canal, Linnie Canal, Howland Canal, and Sherman Canal) and two north-south canals

There is a little park where you can see a get together of ducks, it's really cute

The Beautiful Venice Canals

Exploring Venice Beach is awesome yet crazy! The boardwalk is so alive, but sometimes could get overwhelming. If you just hop, skip and jump over a few blocks away from the boardwalk, you'll find yourself in the enchantment of the Venice Canals. This area is completely different from the boardwalk, it's hard to believe they are right next to each other. It's just such a serene place, great area just to walk around. Perfect time to go would be sunset, if you are at the right spot, it is beauuutiful.
It's really photogenic too, and it's great to ogle at the houses, you know to take a peek at how the other half lives...
Definitely a place to visit when you're in the area. One of my favorites!

Where are the freaks and weirdos of Venice Beach?

Only two blocks seperate the weird Venice from the nice Venice. Venice Canals being the nice Venice. Ducks swimming in the canal, whimsical homes dot along the streets, well-kept lawn and garden add colors to the serene setting, and white foot-bridges criss cross the canals. Owners decorate their homes around Christmas time, making it especially festive.
Each time I return to the canals, I discover something new about them. On a recent lazy Sunday afternoon dog walk. We walked down many canals. Each one has its own character and history. Some canals are better kept and cleaner than others. One canal in particular has angry dogs.

Venice Canals

Take a walk or drive or ride around the Venice Canals to just see this lovely part of town. There are not many canals left, so it is not a huge area to see, but what is there is picturesque and quaint.
The canals are not too far from the beach end of town.

Silver Strand

While technically this may be Marina Del Rey, the canal that goes through the area feeds into the Venice canals. Multi-million dollar homes line the often half-dry canal on both sides. It is a very nice place to take an afternoon stroll or take your dog for a walk.

Venice Canals

When you visit the canals it is hard to believe that you are in the middle of a city as large as Los Angeles. The canal area is quiet and peaceful, the tranquility only disturbed by the quacking of ducks swimming in the canals. Unfortunately, less than 50% of the original canals remain today.

Venice Canals

When you visit Venice, make sure to take a stroll in the Venice Canals. It's a very beautiful and picturesque stroll along flower strewn, peaceful and glorious canals. It's even better if you can get a friend to give you a little float down one of the canals. The canals are the last remnants of Abbott Kinneys attempt to make Venice CA into a Venice Italy. It's great around sunset and also nice at night. Very romantic. You can stroll over and eat at nearby restaurants on Washington.
