Description
Founded in 1905, Venice originally boasted many miles of interconnected canals; today only six canals form a network of waterways lined by contemporary and historic houses. Venice is probably most known for its Ocean Front Walk, alive every day with bicyclists, weight lifters, bikini-clad in-line-skaters, and tourists who come to look at the many artisan booths, devotees of body-piercing and risqué street performers.
Venice has served as the backdrop for a number of movie and television productions, including “Baywatch.”
Shopping
Along Abbot Kinney Boulevard the former beach cottages and industrial buildings now house upscale, high-end shops, restaurants and galleries.
