Potluck at Venice Canals/Beach

Looking for something fun and out of the ordinary? The Venice Canals are a perfect outing. We can stroll for a scenic walk across the many arched bridges.

Tucked just a block from the famous Venice Beach and Venice Pier, this network of man-made canals were built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as a homage to Venice, Italy. Back in the day gondolas took tourists on a tour while today small boats and canoes belonging to homeowners are moored along the route. Four canals stretch east-west, Carroll, Linnie, Howland, and Sherman while the Eastern and Grand Canals run north-south. This quaint neighborhood feels like a hidden pocket of Los Angeles, and the quiet atmosphere and fresh, ocean air does wonders! Their colored boats and very eclectic mixture of homes...all stunning but different. It was peaceful and just looking at the houses and gardens  and their unique structures and how some are painted is worth seeing. 

After we take a walk on the canals, we can head to the beach which is only one block from the canals.

How to dress: Remember beachside is always cooler than expected, so always have a light jacket or cover up on hand. Yes, even in the summer!

All ages welcome

Hope to see you all.
