The canals are downright gorgeous! If you're looking to get away from the crowds of Venice right by the ocean, then this is a nice little stroll where it's much quieter. You'll probably spend 20-30 minutes walking around and enjoying the scenery—it really is just...More

Stumbled upon these canals without ever hearing about them, and so glad I did. So very charming, it will put a smile on your face. Beautifully quaint homes and lush landscapes.

If you've walked the bustling boardwalk in Venice and you're ready to see the softer side, head to the canal walkway. There is a variety of water fowl, beautiful flower gardens and stunning architecture along the way. Take your time with a coffee and enjoy...More

I was totally taken aback to discover how the Venetian canals had been used as a marketing and city planning device for the new real estate developed into Venoice. CA. What a sotry. They are delightful to visit. just fun!

The locals have managed to protect the remaining waterways from development as a marina. They're slow regenerating the vegetation and theres lots of birds visiting now. The house are lovely, well kept with nice small gardens and there are a number of park like alley...More

The Venice Canals Walkway was very small and smelled pretty terrible. If you need something to do and want to walk around a bit, then this is a good option. I just wouldn't recommend planning a day around this attraction as it was a little...More

Over rated. If you are going to walk through here, remember to go when the water is up or you will be looking at a dry ditch. Just a sidewalk behind homes, nothing special.

Very nice walk along the pathways and over bridges. Lovely homes. Reminiscent of Venice, Italy though the architecture couldn't be more different.

The Venice canals based on Venice, Italy is a nice walk. There are 8 canals left but it's so nice to see the architecture of the houses, the plants and the vibe.

One of the highlights of my tour in Los Angeles. Truly stunning place and not at all busy. Great photo opportunity.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

I am sure there tour companies that offer tours but as this is a residential neighborhood I am not sure large groups would be allowed. If you have the car you can park near one of the entrances and just walk around. It is... More

If you don't mind paying to park, the closest pay lot to the canals is located at 2108 Pacific Ave, Venice, CA 90291. It's basically at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Pacific Avenue, which is the starting point for a... More
