An unconventional enclave along Los Angeles’ coast, Venice combines alternative values with counter-culture street cred. A carnival atmosphere permeates throughout this beach town, emanating from its fire-breathing street performers and its spoken-word sidewalk expressionists. Venice may be over ten miles away from Downtown, but its endearingly outlandish mixture of upscale boutiques and seedy entertainment make the trek by bus or car infinitely worth it.
Venice is a residential, commercial, and recreational beachfront neighborhood of the city of Los Angeles in the Westside region of Los Angeles County. Venice was founded in 1905 as a seaside resort town. It was an independent city until 1926, when it merged with Los Angeles. Today, Venice is known for its canals, beaches and circus-like Ocean Front Walk, a two-and-a-half-mile pedestrian-only promenade that features performers, fortune-tellers, artists, and vendors. Many of Venice’s houses have their principal entries from pedestrian-only streets and have house numbers on these footpaths–automobile access is by alleys in the rear. The inland walk streets are made up primarily of around 620 single-family homes.
