About your host

I am an amateur historian and Venice CA, enthusiast. I live in the Historic Venice Canal zone, and enjoy sharing my knowledge of the area. Having lived in Venice Beach for over 10 years, I can offer insight into the unique history of the area, as well, as the changes that have led us up to our present day environment and lifestyle.

What we’ll do

We will meet in the Historic Venice Canal Zone, where you will learn about how Venice of America, the famous resort community founded by Abbot Kinney in 1906 came to be, and how and why it has changed over the years to become the modern-day community it is now. Each guest will receive a map (Yours to keep) detailing all the original canals and attractions. We will walk the map (about 3 miles)…

What I’ll provide

Each guest will receive a complimentary libation of a glass of beer, wine, or non-alcoholic drink.
A map of 1906 Venice of America. Venice as it was during the golden age.

What to bring

Comfortable walking shoes or sneakers.
A bottle of water.
Sunscreen, or hat

Where you'll be

The Venice Canals are modeled after the canals of Venice Italy. Besides the remaining canals, we'll also view some of the historic original buildings that remain, and walk some of the modern day streets where the canals used to also be, including the Lagoon, and Winward St where a replica of the original Venice sign hangs today. We'll wind up at a local pub on Washington Blvd where you can enjoy the local pub fare and drink.
