Venice (Canals Included) Walking Tour – Part 5

Jan 18, 2011 by Lisa Newton

Since our last Venice (Canals Included) Walking Tour story, we ended that portion at the Post Office in Windward Circle.

It’s the heart and soul of Abbott Kinney’s vision of bringing Venice, Italy to California.

While on our walking tour of the newly redeveloped and gentrified Venice, it gives us a glimpse of Kinney’s original plans for Venice that he conceptualized 100 years ago, when many of its streets were canals traversed by both boats and gondolas.

Now, Venice has a population estimated to be over 40,000 with and a median household income $67,057, making it one of Los Angeles’ most vibrant and eclectic neighborhoods in the country.

Today’s Part 5 of Travelin’ Local’s Venice (Canals Included) Walking Tour was created to provide even more information and background about Venice’s history and architecture:
