Venice (Canals included) Walking Tour – Part 2

Oct 18, 2010 by Lisa Newton

Venice has become California’s new Riviera–with its eclectic shopping, dining establishments, fine beaches, beautiful people, and something always going on–the city never sleeps.

Last week we shared with you a small portion of our upcoming Venice Walking Tour Part 1 of the Venice (Canals included) Walking Tour. and for today’s Part 2, we’ll take a closer look into the heart of Venice, along with some of its vaulted and interesting history.

In case you didn’t know it, Abbott Kinney Boulevard is named after the founder of Venice. In fact, over 100 years ago, Venice, wasn’t actually named with its moniker, rather it was called Ocean Park–and that was how it all got started.

Since Travelin’ Local’s newest Venice E-book tour will be finished soon, we’ll let you enjoy this part of the Walking Tour work its magic:

Part 3 of the Venice (Canals included) Walking Tour will be published later this week.

    If people want to see what Venice looked like in the mid-fifties then go to YouTube and enter “Touch Of Evil”… The opening scene is the entrance at Windward made to look like a border town….
    A great movie by Orson Welles and one should have a good sense of humor to understand the “camp” humor of this flick…
