The private streets of Venice are known for their narrow walkways, which are difficult for cars to maneuver through. For a more secluded experience farther from the beach, the inner neighborhoods near Abbot Kinney have many condominiums and townhouses, while providing easy access to quirky shops and eateries. However, for those who want to be in the middle of the action, there are plenty of single-family and ranch-style homes closer to the beach in the areas nestled between Venice and Washington Boulevards.
There are plenty of places to eat in Venice, ranging from a grab-and-go slice of pizza to hand scooped ice cream to Michelin-rated restaurants. If you are craving more festive and home-style cuisines, Pacific Avenue is the way to go. Rose Avenue, Windward Avenue, and Abbot Kinney also offer a variety of specialty delis, cafes, sushi restaurants, and trattorias for those who want to to spend a little more time enjoying a sit-down meal.
Venice is one of the best places to people watch because there are a lot of artists, musicians, and performers roaming through the Venice Pier and Ocean Front Walk, better known as the boardwalk. Some days may seem more "normal" compared to others, but you should always expect the unexpected in Venice -- whether it's a three-headed turtle or an impossibly flexible gymnast, you can always be surprised by the sights of Venice. Other staples in the neighborhood are locals headed for a day out at the beach, surfers sitting on their boards while looking out for the next big wave, and countless people cycling along the Venice Bike Trail.
Although tourists and visitors dominate the Venice area during the day, Friday night is a time when the locals come out to kick back at the sports bars, art galleries and outdoor beach patios. Head to Washington Square to experience the lively side of Venice, or explore the unique design galleries, wine bars, and live jazz music located along Abbot Kinney.
Walk along Abbot Kinney for quality cafe options or get a palm reading after strolling through the Venice boardwalk. Grab your skateboard and head over to the Venice Beach Skatepark, or if you want a little more splashing, grab your surfboard and tackle the beach waves. For those heavy-lifters, be sure to check out Muscle Beach at the Venice Recreation Center to pump some iron. Or listen to the beats of the Venice Beach Drum Circle. Anything can happen in Venice.
