Charming, upscale Venice CA homes dwell in the eclectic beachfront village set on the west side of Los Angeles. Venice Beach is the second-largest tourist attraction in Southern California and home to about 29,000 residents. Many buyers search Venice real estate for sale for vacation getaways to enjoy the one-of-a-kind artsy culture. The Bohemian-like community is well known for its canals, pier, beaches, pedestrian boardwalk, artist colonies, and boutique shops, eateries, and hotels.
A stroll down the Ocean Front Walk captures the imagination as does the vibrant beach scene in Venice. People watchers abound and there is always something interesting to see. Fascinating performers, tattoo artists, and new-age fortunetellers blend with an active lifestyle - swimming, surfing, skateboarding, cycling, beach volleyball, fishing, and dancing.
Originally called Venice of America, the resort community was founded in 1904 by Abbot Kinney. It was annexed by the City of Los Angeles in 1925. Poets and artists gravitated to the community, especially since the 1960s. Today historic cottage houses in Venice populate the area around Abbot Kinney Boulevard. The hip neighborhood is full of creative shops and galleries, cafés and bars, and special live music. The Venice Canal Historic District features manmade canals built by Kinney at the beginning of the twentieth century. The canals have been completely renovated and reflect the atmosphere of Venice, Italy.
Real estate in Venice Beach follows the Pacific Ocean on the southwest side. Popular upscale communities such as Marina Del Ray and Santa Monica surround Venice's neighborhoods. The Los Angeles International Airport is 15 minutes from the community.
