Explore the Venice Canals

1 miles  - Loop Trail

Added by Lucas Pols

The Venice Canals are a hidden gem of Los Angeles that are definitely worth a stroll.

The canals are a fun and quiet place to relax away from the hectic Venice boardwalk. Take a stroll through the canals or even get in a run! The reflections in the water are the main attraction and are great for photography. Spring, after some rain, is the best time to go as the water levels are going to be the highest!

Surprisingly beautiful

The Venice canals are surprisingly beautiful.

Favorite LA Spot!

The canals are one of my favorite LA spots. There are usually very few people (if at all) there and it can be such a wonderful stroll amidst a crazy city. It feels like a little escape! Great place to stroll on a date, or grab some lunch and enjoy the view while you eat!

A Great Morning Walk

Hit Menotti's Coffee Shop beforehand! A nice stroll through the canals + some coffee = the best way to wake up.

Scenic

The canals are pretty cool considering their location in SoCal. The water levels can get pretty low, especially during the dry parts of the year, so time your visit accordingly! Otherwise it's a great place to take a casual stroll.

A Good Walk In Evening
