We’ve all seen clips of Venice Beach from TV shows and movies. It’s a center of counter culture groups and niched subcultures. It’s visually appealing with a ton going on. Since we came to meet up with some family, I took the time to take you along on my first walk on my first visit. In addition to the smell of pot and burned sugar, I saw quite a few homeless people, t-shirt shops, bars, and restaurants. I also saw Muscle Beach weight training area largely closed and a skate park largely open. Music blasted everywhere but I didn’t see as many people as are shown on the more produced TV shows. I did see a small production going on at the beginning with a couple production vans and a craft services setup. I enjoyed this walk and seeing some of the massive homes and the tree lined and shaded pedestrian ways from the main road a couple blocks up from the beach. I hope you enjoy this walk along Venice Beach as well. Incidentally, I’ve been talking to someone in Venice, Italy about sharing some of his walks on this channel so keep an eye out for that in the next couple weeks. Nothing is certain but it’s looking good.
I hope you’ll take some time to share your memories and thoughts on Venice Beach in the comments below and share this channel with friends and family. Thanks -H

Venice is a neighborhood in the city of Los Angeles within the Westside region of Los Angeles County, California.
Venice was founded by Abbot Kinney in 1905 as a seaside resort town. It was an independent city until 1926, when it merged with Los Angeles. Venice is known for its canals, a beach, and Ocean Front Walk, a two-and-a-half-mile (4 km) pedestrian promenade that features performers, fortune-tellers, artists and vendors.
Venice, originally called “Venice of America”, was founded by wealthy developer Abbot Kinney in 1905 as a beach resort town, 14 miles (23 km) west of Los Angeles. He and his partner Francis Ryan had bought 2 miles (3 km) of ocean-front property south of Santa Monica in 1891. They built a resort town on the north end of the property, called Ocean Park, which was soon annexed to Santa Monica. After Ryan died, Kinney and his new partners continued building south of Navy Street. After the partnership dissolved in 1904, Kinney, who had won the marshy land on the south end of the property in a coin flip with his former partners, began to build a seaside resort like the namesake Italian city.
When Venice of America opened on July 4, 1905, Kinney had dug several miles of canals to drain the marshes for his residential area, built a 1,200-foot (370 m)-long pleasure pier with an auditorium, ship restaurant, and dance hall, constructed a hot salt-water plunge, and built a block-long arcaded business street with Venetian architecture. Kinney hired artist Felix Peano to design the columns of the buildings. Included in the capitals are several faces, modeled after Kinney himself and a local girl named Nettie Bouck.

Tourists, mostly arriving on the “Red Cars” of the Pacific Electric Railway from Los Angeles and Santa Monica, then rode the Venice Miniature Railway and gondolas to tour the town. The biggest attraction was Venice’s 1 mile (1.6 km)-long gently-sloping beach. Cottages and housekeeping tents were available for rent.
The population (3,119 residents in 1910) soon exceeded 10,000; the town drew 50,000 to 150,000 tourists on weekends
