Venice Beach Neighborhood
The Venice V is located in the heart of Venice Beach— a globally renowned neighborhood established in 1905 that generations later remains one of the most exciting and vibrant beach communities in the world.
Breathe in the Ocean Air
Step outside — Venice Beach, the iconic bike path, and local surf breaks are right outside your door. Whether you’re seeking to get out and explore the neighborhood, paddle out on an afternoon surf lesson, or just bask in the sunshine on the beach, it’s all here.
The World’s Best People Watching
Two words: people watching. Venice is renowned for its offbeat characters and local charm — a Venentian flavor all its own. Get out and watch amateurs and pros alike at the legendary skate park…or pump iron at Muscle Beach, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s old flexing grounds…or simply stroll and soak it in along the vibrant Boardwalk.
Venice’s Boardwalk is one of the most highly-visited, history-rich spots in Los Angeles. A pedestrian-only stretch of promenade home to some of the neighborhood’s best eateries, bars, boutiques — it is a melting pot of story, character, and soul outside your door.
A Historically Vibrant Community
Venice was originally conceived in 1905 by visionary American developer and conservationist Abbot Kinney — inspired to create the “Venice of America,” he designed a themed seaside resort complete with canals, gondolas, and an arched colonnade framing a town square. Today, Kinney’s namesake boulevard is a renowned center of eclectic shopping and high-end dining…and the path along his winding canals are the perfect place to stretch your legs on a Venice walk.
Family Fun at the Iconic Pier
Bike up the coast to continue the fun at Santa Monica’s bustling pier and Third Street Promenade, home to local restaurants, shopping, arcade, and classic amusement park rides like the giant solar-powered Ferris wheel, original 1922 merry-go-round, and roller coaster.
Set Sail & Explore the Outdoors
Get out into nature to explore the beauty of Marina del Rey, a historic harbor and coastal playground offering everything from sailing adventures to paddle boarding, kayaking to fishing. Nearby, the beautiful Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve offers a peaceful sojourn for hiking and bird-watching within its network of protected marshland.
