Founder Abbot Kinney’s Venice of America may be gone, but the artistry, eccentricity, and individualism that sank its roots into this neighborhood remain. Explore the art, architecture, history, and amazing recreational opportunities of Venice with our Field Guides. With comprehensive maps, directions, and detailed amenities, the Venice Field Guides will introduce you to a neighborhood you only thought you knew.
American neighborhoods are changing, growing and re-defining themselves. Nowhere is this more evident than in Venice, California, where one of Los Angeles' most sophisticated and affluent creative enclaves sits side-by-side with a traditional working class community. Despite all these contradictions, Venice remains a magical spot not only to the tourists that flock to its beaches year after year, but also to those—rich or poor—that call Venice their home.
