Walk-Streets | KCET
Beyond the beach, Venice is a wonderland of treats for pedestrians willing to explore. The community even has an area referred to by the locals as the "walk-streets." Each narrow passageway showcases a vibrant display of architectural and landscaping talent. Explore these pedestrian pathways that slice through scenic residential bungalows, cottages, and flourishing gardens.
Walk-streets include Marco Place, Ambroso Place and Nowita Place - west of Lincoln Boulevard and east of Shell Avenue - and residents there will be happy to greet you when traveling through their community with admiration and respect. For lunch or dinner, consider the plethora of options down the street on Lincoln Ave. Craving something grilled? Try Baby Blues BBQ. Hankering more for Mexican and seafood cuisine? Then don't miss Casablanca Restaurant. Have a perfect day walking and eating the best of Venice.
Begin at Amoroso Pl. and Lincoln Ave.
