Walking/Family in Venice
Family-friendly attractions abound in Venice. Visit this beach-side neighborhood with your family just as thousands of Angelenos used to in the early 20th Century to see the spectacles of Abbot Kinney’s Venice of America. Walk the boardwalk to encounter intricate sand sculptures created right before your eyes and then hit the beach to explore the tide pools of the Venice Breakwater. Take a jaunt down to the Venice Pier to enjoy the view, fish with your kids, or check out the Venice Oceanarium that pops up most Sundays to showcase amazing specimens of the sea. Also, make sure you meander through the neighborhood “walk-streets”, narrow pedestrian pathways that slice through scenic examples of unique residential architecture and finely-crafted gardens.

Departures Venice

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.
