Welcome to Venice

Venice is a class unto itself. Founded in the mid-1950s as a seaside resort town, the neighborhood has flourished into a constantly expanding cultural center that refuses to be defined. Beach bums and passionate environmentalists alike feel at home on Venice’s dynamic streets.
After its establishment as a seaside resort town by a famed environmentalist, Venice became a destination for all things health-oriented and arts-centric. Named after the original Italian city, Venice was at one point home to numerous crisscrossing canals. A few still stand today, giving the area a uniquely gorgeous atmosphere of beach and waterfront views with specialized architecture.
Today, the architecture is as diverse as the neighborhood itself. Cozy bungalows stand beside sweeping, modern homes. Even the parking garages are striking, providing more of that artsy atmosphere throughout the city. Enchanted by an unbeatable location and dynamic energy, many young professionals are proud to call Venice their home.

Local Lifestyle

Nicknamed by some “Bohemia-by-the-Sea,” Venice is everything a California beachside town is supposed to embody. Natural oases of gorgeous green spaces, impeccable beach access, a balmy nightlife culture residents love, and numerous art galleries, installations, and iconic architecture all contribute to Venice’s unique ambiance. Home to almost 36,000 residents, Venice is defined by its eclectic population of artists, industry titans, and skaters. A tight-knit community, rare history, an enviable location on the beach, and charming streets all create a quintessential part of Los Angeles living.

Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment

The heart of Venice can be found at Windward Circle, a sort-of West Coast “east village,” and Abbot Kinney Boulevard, where stylish boutiques, fine dining, and casual eateries all find a home. 
Imaginative cuisine is just one of the perks of local favorite Gjelina, which also provides a sleek interior and takeout options. Latin for “happy” or “lucky,” Felix is inspired by authentic Italian gastronomy. A meal as well as an experience, Felix’s hand-made pasta is made right in front of your eyes. 
Integral to Venice’s identity is its world-famous Venice Beach Boardwalk, which features over two miles of performers, pop-up shops, boutiques, and quick-bite eateries, as well as mesmerizing views of the ocean. An artisanal bakery housed in a sprawling warehouse interior, Gjusta is the best place for bread and more, while Baja-chic Rose Cafe is ideal for airy, traditional Californian cuisine.

Things to Do

Venice is bursting with activity every way you turn. Incredible beach access, outdoor fitness options, museums, community events, and more create a never-ending calendar of entertainment and fun. 
On the first Friday of every month, the whole community can be found enjoying sales, food vendors, live music, and great company at Abbot Kinney Boulevard First Fridays, considered L.A.’s premier food truck event. Held annually on the Boardwalk is the Venice Beach Festival, a weekend of activity for the whole family to enjoy. 
Existing with the purpose of supporting Venice, its culture, and its history is the annual Abbot Kinney Festival, a bombastic event full of artisan goods, tremendous food, and even better company. Don’t forget that the great outdoors hold all of Venice’s best attractions! From the beach to many pockets of green spaces, the city is created for lovers of nature.
