Venice

Welcome to Venice

Venice was founded in the early 1900’s by a tobacco millionaire, Abbot Kinney. The area was originally a beach resort set on two miles of ocean front property. It was an independent city until 1926 when it merged with Los Angeles.

Around the Block

Home to a vibrant surfing and skate culture, Venice maintains an edgy coolness that has long attracted the city’s free spirits.

With ocean exposure, a boardwalk that stretches over two miles, an endless parade of street performers, and classic Californian architecture, Venice is among the city’s hottest neighborhoods.

The Neighbors

Surfers, skaters, entrepreneurs, and artists.

Over the past several years, a slew of artists, restauranteurs, and designers have entered Venice, imbuing the area with a creative, innovative sensibility.

What To Expect

Bike rides along the beach, boardwalk culture, and premier surfing.

Venice locals enjoy the town’s creative atmosphere, tasty food, and of course, the shoreline. With perhaps the best waves on the southern California coast, Venice beaches draw ocean enthusiasts from every corner of the city.

The Lifestyle

Hip, hyperlocal, and beach-driven.

Venice’s reputation as a laid-back beach town is well-deserved.

Its stylish locals appreciate and support the plentiful food, coffee, and fashion establishments scattered throughout town—places like Gjelina, Salt and Straw, and Blue Bottle Coffee have devoted fan bases.

Unexpected Appeal

Secluded side streets.

While the beach and boardwalk see their share of crowds, its residential streets sometimes provide a quiet respite.

The Market

A varied mix of newly developed apartment buildings and modern homes.

Homes in Venice are predominantly modern and beautifully designed. The lots tend to be smaller compared with other LA neighborhoods, spiking the beach town vibe with a surprisingly urban feel.
