Surfers, skaters, entrepreneurs, and artists
Over the past several years, a slew of artists, restauranteurs, and designers have entered Venice, imbuing the area with a creative, innovative sensibility.
What to Expect
Bike rides along the beach, boardwalk culture, and premier surfing
Venice locals enjoy the town’s creative atmosphere, tasty food, and of course, the shoreline. With perhaps the best waves on the southern California coast, Venice beaches draw ocean enthusiasts from every corner of the city.
Hip, hyperlocal, and beach-driven
Venice’s reputation as a laid-back beach town is well-deserved. Its stylish locals appreciate and support the plentiful food, coffee, and fashion establishments scattered throughout town—places like Gjelina, Salt and Straw, and Blue Bottle Coffee have devoted fan bases.
Secluded side streets
While the beach and boardwalk see their share of crowds, its residential streets sometimes provide a quiet respite.
A varied mix of newly developed apartment buildings and modern homes
Homes in Venice are predominantly modern and beautifully designed. The lots tend to be smaller compared with other LA neighborhoods, spiking the beach town vibe with a surprisingly urban feel.
