Venice

Iconic beach community with a fast-developing reputation as the second Silicon Valley, suitably referred to as Silicon Beach




WELCOME TO VENICE

The eclectic Los Angeles’ beach town of Venice is often referred to as Venice Beach, with its iconic oceanfront stretch being one of the world’s most famous beach destinations. Iconic cultural points include Ocean Front Walk, which has appeared in countless Hollywood films and television shows, Skate Dancing plaza, the many bike paths, handball, volleyball and paddle tennis courts, and Muscle Beach, all of which are notoriously representative of Venice Beach.

Venice has more recently gained a high-tech reputation as the second Silicon Beach, thanks to the presence of Snapchat, Google and other major tech firms opening up offices and headquarters along the picturesque Venice streets.

PEOPLE & LIFESTYLE


Venice has long been known as an edgy, artistic, and thoroughly Californian beach town. Its residents and visitors give the area a creative and endlessly exciting atmosphere.

While the beach is the most iconic aspect of Venice, this trendy community has much more to offer than its coast line. Ultra-trendy Abbot Kinney Boulevard is one of the hippest streets in Los Angeles, offering boutique shopping, yoga and spinning classes, art galleries, food trucks, and fabulous cafes and restaurants. The first Friday of every month sees stores opening extra-late, live music performances along the Boulevard and a concentration of food trucks in the area creating an organic opportunity for residents and visitors alike to enjoy the best the Venice community has to offer.

Abbot Kinney Boulevard takes its names from the eccentric millionaire who created the town in 1905, modeling it after the iconic canal-lined Italian city of Venice. While California’s Venice has since developed an exemplary character of its own, Kinney’s original vision can still be seen in the beautiful waterways and quaint colorful cottages situated in the Venice Historic Canal District.
