DID WE MENTION THAT WE’VE EARNED THE TITLE OF MARIJUANA DISPENSARY OF THE YEAR IN THE VENICE AREA?

We love everything about this city, from its laid-back beach vibes to its delicious food, Venice has it all. It’s bounded by the Santa Monica city line to the northwest, Walgrove Avenue to the east, and Ballona Creek to the south. This 3.17-square-mile neighborhood is home to more than 40,000 people, but it brings 28,000-30,000 visitors on average every single day. And that’s not surprising – who doesn’t have a thing for Venice?

Venice is best known for its canals, beaches, and Ocean Front Walk, which is a pedestrian promenade of artists, live music, vendors, and mystics. Abbot Kinney Boulevard was named the “Coolest Block in America” by GQ with good reason; it’s home to some of the trendiest restaurants, shops, and galleries in all of Los Angeles. Venice is very walkable, and even more accessible with a bike. A casual stroll through the streets will show the eccentric variety of homes, where million-dollar bungalows are side-by-side with the rent-controlled buildings of yesteryear.

DID YOU KNOW THAT VENICE WAS ORIGINALLY CALLED “VENICE OF AMERICA”, AND FOUNDED BY THE TOBACCO GIANT ABBOT KINNEY?

It started out as a resort town in 1905, and remained an independent city until it became a part of Los Angeles in 1926. When it first opened on the Fourth of July in 1905, canals were dug to drain marshes for Kinney’s residential space. It had an auditorium, dance hall, a salt-water plunge, a restaurant located on a ship, and buildings featuring Venetian architecture.

Venice has an interesting history and plenty of little-known-facts. The band The Doors formed in Venice in 1965. Arnold Schwarzenegger was a frequent visitor at Gold’s Gym. The image of Abbot Kinney’s face was carved into the columns of buildings back in 1904, and some can still be seen on the pylon of Danny’s Deli on Windward. Venice was so neglected in the 1950’s that it earned the name “Slum by the Sea”, and earned a spot in Orson Welles’ film Touch of Evil in 1958 because of its dilapidated appearance.
