Destination guide

Find yourself in the Venice of America

Canals, snake charmers and beautiful beaches, Venice is the gift that keeps on giving. Crisscrossed by canals, it was founded in 1905 by a wealthy businessman who wanted to build the Venice of America. Now the beachfront suburb is centered around its famous boardwalk, which attracts a colorful array of street performers, vendors, and general show-offs. Get your Californian dream off to a booming start by booking a Venice vacation rental. Whether you come to flex your pecs at Muscle Beach, watch the snake charmers, or surf in one of California's top surf spots, you're guaranteed a great time.

Things to do

Under the boardwalk, we'll be havin' some fun!

The Venice social life pretty much revolves around its infamous boardwalk. Officially called the Ocean Front Walk, it winds for some 2.5 miles along the beach and is a magical myriad of street entertainers, vendors, and muscle men. Book a cool Venice vacation rental just off the boardwalk and have on-tap entertainment day and night. Away from the beach is the Venice Canal Historic District, a.k.a the Venice of America. You can even explore the small canal network by gondola and see some of Venice's cool modernist architecture.


It's all about the beach vibe in Venice

The beautiful palm-lined sands of Venice Beach are one of California's top attractions, just ask any surfer. Book a beachfront Venice vacation rental and wake up to yoga on the beach, work out with the weightlifters on Muscle Beach, or book a surf lesson from a pro. If you prefer to be on the sea rather than in it, book a boat trip and spot dolphins and whales. As the sun sets, take a stroll along its famous boardwalk, where you'll find everything from singers and fortune tellers to snake charmers. It's a great place for people watching.


Find 500 days of summer in Venice

For sun, sun, and more sun, Venice is the place to be. Blessed with long, hot summers, short winters, and very little rainfall, Venice is a popular vacation destination all year round. The sizzling summer months between June and August generally attract a wealth of visitors to the coast and Venice vacation rentals get snapped up quickly. Come in late spring or early fall when the days are still deliciously warm and you'll find the beaches and boardwalk much quieter, but bring a jacket for the cool evening breeze.

Natural features

Want hiking in Venice? Where there's a Will there's a way

Squeezed between Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey, Venice has a prime spot on LA's Pacific Coast. A 4-mile drive south of the beach is the Ballona Wetlands, an ecological nature reserve home to California's native birdlife, including the great blue heron, snowy egret, and the Belding's Savannah sparrow. Serious hikers should head 7 miles north to Will Rogers State Historic Park. Part of the beautiful Santa Monica Mountain range, it promises dozens of spectacular walking trails through the canyons, many with scenic views across LA's skyline and the Pacific Ocean.
