    This is a small area of Venice but a great place to wander around. In our case, we rented bicycles and cycled around which means you cannot go everywhere because cycles are banned from some of the small roads. Many of the houses on the canals looked very fancy.

    A very nice and romantic place to visit. Street parking can be difficult, depending on what time you're going. But it's not that bad! You can walk around and check out the canals and walk over the bridge. You can also see the duckies playing around. If you keep walking a few more minutes, you hit Venice Beach! So overall, a great place to take that special someone!

    Kids and adults would love walking along the canals, seeing the ducks, peeping into homes and trotting over the bridges. A lovely neighborhood for a sunday morning walk.

    The canals are beautiful; what a wonderful hidden gem in Venice! If you're grabbing a meal along Abbot Kinney, you can get here by walking about a mile. Walk along the path and across the bridges...it's like a maze. You may find the occasional resident in a canoe on the water too.

    Originally the canals were meant to be an amusement park resembling Venice, Italy. Today it sort of resembles a cross between a wealthy residential neighborhood, a park and a historical monument.

    The canals are great to explore on foot and I consider them to be one of Venice's most interesting attractions. There's a lot of great architecture and the reflection off of the water makes for a lot of great photo opportunities.

    The Venice Canals are on of la's best kept and most surprising secrets. The area around the canals is largely residential, but you can still explore on foot.

    One of Venice's hidden gems - very few tourists know about the canals, with their arched bridges and flower lined paths. Jim Morrison used to live here. A great place to take a stroll and check out one of LA's coolest neighborhoods.

    Venice's original 16 miles of canals have been reduced to an affluent grid bounded by South Venice Boulevard and Ocean Avenue, 28th Avenue and Pacific Avenue. When you become bored with the Boardwalk, a trip to the canals will be soothing.

    One of hidden gem in Venice, sure everyone knows about the famous Venice Beach. But this one often overlook and only local knows it. Next time when you in Venice Beach, this is worth to check it out ! Nice canal and million dollar house.

    A lovely part of Los Angeles for a long evening stroll. Lots of cool houses and charming little nooks to see.
