Where is Venice Beach?
Adjacent south of Santa Monica on the Pacific Coast Highway is Venice Beach – for the locals it’s just Venice. The community was born in 1905 and developed by the eccentric millionaire Abbot Kinney, who shaped it after his favourite Italian town – complete with squares and canals. You can still see these canals with idyllic, traditional huts in the Venice Canal Historic District.
Today’s Venice, however, is known for the quirky happenings on its iconic seafront, where street artists and street vendors have created a memorable scene full of local originals and quirky types. Take in all this from the noisy and lively Skate Park on the beach, or join the daily drum circle on the beach (you can also pick up a stick and a can – or any other noisy item – and tune in).
