The Venice Canals in Southern California
In 1902 there were 16 miles of canals. Today there are just six canals. A small and now upscale corner of Venice, CA still provides watery fronts to its residents and landing pads for sea birds. The Venice Boardwalk is the biggest attraction for visitors to this historic and fun southern California beach community but we always take our private luxury tour guests interested in the Los Angeles beach scene around the Venice canals and talk about Abbott Kinney and his vision of an American version of Italy’s Venice. For more adventure take a Segway tour of Venice with us. Or, as we captured in this photo, fly over the canals on one of our helicopter tours of Los Angeles.
