An unconventional enclave along Los Angeles’ coast, Venice combines alternative values with counter-culture street cred. Labeled a “cultural hub known for its eccentricities” as well as a “global tourist destination”, Venice was founded by Abbot Kinney in 1905, as a seaside resort town. Now Venice is known for its canals, sandy beaches, Ocean Front Walk, and famed two-and-a-half-mile (4 km) pedestrian promenade that features performers, fortune-tellers, artists and vendors. A carnival atmosphere permeates through this beach town, emanating from its fire-breathing street performers and its spoken-word sidewalk expressionists. Characterized by an endearingly outlandish mixture of upscale boutiques and seedy entertainment, this neighborhood is an esoteric choice and for the young of heart.
