Venice Canal Historic District Activity , Venice Beach
Discover a slice of classic Italy in LA’s Venice Canal Historic District. This beautiful area consisting of man-made canals was originally built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as part of his ‘Venice of America’ plan. Over the years many of the canals were filled to make way for housing and businesses, however a few miles remain which are an absolute pleasure to explore.
Starting at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Pacific Avenue at the corner of Washington and Strong Drive, take a walk through Europe in the heart of California. Discover the eclectic architecture of the million dollar homes which sit along the canals, from traditional cottages to modern houses. See the rowboats, kayaks and canoes moored outside the houses and the quaint pedestrian bridges which cross the canal. The whole area takes around an hour to explore and you’ll also find a small park at Linnie Canal bridge and Dell Avenue which has a children’s playground and an area for wild birds and ducks.
