A Visit to Venice and the Canals
Venice is More than a Beach for Our Private Tour Family
After sightseeing around the highlights of Hollywood and Beverly Hills and with the temperature rising our private Los Angeles tour guests were eager to see the wide beaches, especially Venice Beach. The city is famous for its boardwalk (no longer wooden) and all the fun little stores, snackshops and restaurants as well as its distinctive architecture. We could do an entire custom tour and not leave Venice. Murals and public art, history from the earliest days of Los Angeles, the story of Abbott Kinney and the famous Venice piers and, of course, the canals. Seeing the remaining waterways continues to excite and amaze our guests especially when we describe the full extent of the canals as they were originally constructed. Gondoliers once plied the central lagoon and there were cafés all around. All that was missing to complete the vision of Mr. Kinney was the Doge’s Palace. But this is Southern California and not Italy. Our lifestyle is skateboarding and surfing, sunbathing and sightseeing on the cool Los Angeles coastline.
