Venice Canals.

Tucked between the grimy Venice Boardwalk and the posh Abbot Kinney, the Venice Canals offer a completely different side of the famed beachfront neighborhood. Take a stroll through these three canal-lined blocks—hence the name, Venice—and you'll discover an idyllic scene: arching pedestrian bridges, charming beach houses, bunches of ducklings and the occasional paddle boarding bulldog. Though you won't find boat rentals anywhere along the canals, you can bring your own non-motorized vessel to tour the neighborhood at water level (enter via the launch ramp at Venice Boulevard).

Venue name: Venice Canals
Address: Dell Ave
Los Angeles

Venice canals are one of my favorite spots on the West side. Taking a walk around the canals and looking at all the pretty houses is so peaceful. It's a great spot for a date night or to bring friends from out of town!

I'm not quite sure why it took me almost four years of living in LA to make it to the canals, but whatever man, I finally made it, and now it's something I always make sure to visit when I'm in Venice. The canals truly take you out of LA and transport you elsewhere—not quite Venice, Italy, but more like an idyllic town that belongs in a children's book. I have a habit of commenting on every house I pass—"Love those blinds," "Why did they paint it that shade of green?" "I want that one"—and daydreaming about what kind of house I'd build if I could score a plot of land here.
