Create an itinerary including Venice Canals Walkway
Escape the city noise and traffic at the Venice Canals Walkway, part of the Venice Canal Historic District. The canals, built by Abbot Kinney in 1905, were intended to resemble the canals of Venice, Italy. They were drained and renovated into scenic walking paths in 1992. Enjoy a relaxing stroll on the paths and quaint bridges, pausing to admire the charming, architecturally diverse homes along the way. The tranquility of this area is notable, especially in comparison to the nearby Venice Beach Boardwalk.

  • If you have an hour and want to take a stroll to see some unique homes situated on a path of canals then this is the place to go. We saw some pretty landscape designs and some really quirky homes...

  • Pretty area to walk and take pictures. Coffee and lunch places on the outskirts. Fun to walk over all of the bridges.

  • Venice Canals is most definitely a must see if you happen to be in the area! It is such a beautiful and peaceful place to be walking around. The canals are so beautiful with the unique bridges, the houses are all so uniquely cute. A great place to be!
  • I love this place , many pretty colors, plants and flowers even the houses alongside the canal with their colors patio sets of chairs . It's nice and quiet for a walk with your dog and kids. They filmed the movie Valentines Day here I remember Ashton Kutcher on that bridge heartbroken 💔. It's a nice stop and stretch your leg from driving along the PACIFIC coast of California. I highly recommend . Venice Beach is at the end of the canal . ❤️ 😍 💖 ❣️
