3. Venice Canals
A lesser-known and more serene alternative to the Venice Boardwalk is the network of waterways between the areas of Venice Blvd. and Pacific Blvd. known as Venice canals. The waterways, originally designed in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney to bring a small slice of Italy the city in California, are connected with small bridges and walkways, home to plenty of ducks and geese. The canals are perfect for a stroll and exploration of a hidden and peaceful part of the city.
