The Venice (Canals included) Walking Tour – Part 1

Oct 06, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Venice is a city full of wonder–physically by structure, naturally because its proximity to the splendorous beaches of the Pacific Ocean, its fresh air and sunny skies, and its cultural mix of its people.

From the rich to the poor, its tattooed hipsters and its white guys playing B-Ball who can’t jump, Dogtown and Z-Boys skateboarders, alongside its senior citizens mingling around town; Venice has it all.

There’s a uniqueness about Venice that you won’t find in any other city.

According to Wikipedia, as of 2008, the Venice’s population is around 40,885, and its median household income is around $67,057, making it one the wealthiest neighborhoods in Los Angeles.

The racial and ethnic composition in Venice is:

White: 63.9%
Latino: 22.2%
African American: 5.6%
Asian: 3.7%
Other: 4.6%

But, enough about the demographics, let’s get to the good stuff.

Over the next few weeks, Travelin’ Local will be featuring a series of articles which will, in the end, make up our newest E-Book–The Venice (Canals included) Walking Tour.

The Venice Walking Tour, will not only feature its beautiful and intricate layers of canals, but will include over four miles of Venice’s culture, architecture, history, and will take you from its local beaches, to the heart of Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Here are the first four pages of the Venice (Canals included) Walking Tour, to give you a flavor of this little gem of an E-Book:

    I can’t wait to read this series! I am a big fan of walking and always thought you couldn’t really do that in LA since it’s a driving city, but it seems like there are small neighborhoods that are good for walking and exploring =)
