The Venice Canal Historic District in Venice Beach, CA is inspired by it’s Itialian namesake. Orginally built in 1905 the canals didn’t gain any tourist popularity until they were renovated and reopened in 1993.
We visited midday on a Saturday and the Canals weren’t busy at all. The hardest part was just finding parking close enough to the Historic district. The residential area is remarkably quite, giving off a unique vibe that’s worth a peak if you’re hanging out at the beach. That being said, other then Linnie Canal Park and some ducks, their isn’t much to keep the interest for long. After about 45mins telling our 4year old we can never afford to live there we snuck over to grab lunch at Venice Beach.
