Initially built by Abbot Kinney to be the Venice, Italy, of the United States, little is left of the 16 miles of canals that once ran through the heart of Venice Beach, but what is left is more than a mile of beautiful waterway, lined by some of the most exclusive homes in the area. A stroll alongside the canals and over the wooden bridges makes for a nice walk only a few short blocks from the famous Venice Beach boardwalk.
