The area
Neighbourhood: Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.

Great Street
Aug 2020 • Family
Abbott Kinney is a lovely Street in Venice that spans about 1.5 MI. Parking is not easy but you will find a spot, but mind the meters. On the weekends it can be especially crowded, especially during the summer. It is just as pretty in the winter and I suggest you go then. There's a lot to do and a lot of walking on Abbot Kinney.

Now, if you are looking for discount shopping or Cheap Eats go somewhere else. The street is filled with boutiques, art galleries, fine dining restaurants and expensive coffee and tea. Despite the cost it is great fun and if you want something unique you might very well find it.

The area is relatively safe and there are few bars which are quite nice. Back to parking: do not go behind the street and find places to park inside the residential area you may find your car stolen when you get back. Stay right on or near Abbot Kinney and you will be fine. The place has gentrified over the years. It used to have little bars, tiny shops and even a few houses, that is no longer the case. But, as locals we have made the best of it and we have learned to love it. You will too

Street with many restaurants and boutiques.

Located between the relative grunge of Venice Beach and the industrial value of Lincoln Boulevard, Abbot Kinney is full of chic shops, art galleries, and some great restaurants along Abbott Kinney
The restaurants are quite good and it is an environment near the beach. While you are there make sure to visit Venice beach there is a lot to see in that place.

What a great little walk of fun in LA. This spot in Venice Beach is just the coolest. Heaps of funky shops and cafes, and murals on walls and lots to see and explore. Highly recommended!
