If you’ve only been to the Venice Beach Boardwalk, you probably wonder how this neighborhood in Los Angeles has any association with the famous tourist destination in Italy. Venice, Italy, has miles of canals sweeping through the heart of the city, romantic gondola rides, and pedestrian walkways. That was the inspiration for Abbot Kinney's Venice of America.

After traveling from the East Coast to San Francisco, Kinney found his way to what is now known as Venice Beach, California. Inspired to bring the Mediterranean’s Venice to California, Kinney changed the city's landscape forever. On July 4, 1905, the seven original canals stretched across two miles and attracted some 40 to 50,000 visitors on the opening day.

History of the Venice Canals

The Venice Canals were built in 1905 by Abbot Kinney, a developer who wanted to create a replica of Venice, Italy, in California. Kinney's vision was to create a network of canals, complete with gondolas, bridges, and beautiful houses. They were designed to drain the marshes and wetlands that existed in the area.

The canals were a huge success, attracting visitors from all over the world. Kinney's Venice of America was a popular tourist destination, and the canals were and still are a major attraction. But Kinney’s dream for the city didn’t end there.

He is also responsible for the giant roller coaster that once adorned the shores, the columned Italian façades near the Pacific Ocean, and the idea to hang letters spelling out Venice. Because of the popularity of the Venice Beach canals, copycats soon sprang up south of Kinney’s development. Called the Short Line canals, these six structures connected to the original Vince of America through the Grand Canal, and by 1910, homes were for sale along these man-made rivers.

Though the Venice Canals in Los Angeles were beloved in their hayday, as cars became more popular, Venice of America became less practical. By 1929, Venice was absorbed into Los Angeles, and the California Supreme Court ruled to fill in Kinney’s canals to create roadways. This change was to be funded by a levied property assessment, and since the six canals south of Kinney’s did not have a high enough population to finance paved roads, they are the only ones that remain today.

By the 1950s, Venice had become known as the "slum by the sea." The canals were in a state of disrepair, and the area was considered undesirable. It wasn't until the 1990s that the city funded a restoration project. In 1993, the canals underwent a $6 million renovation that drained them to remove "80 years of muck" from the waters and restored sidewalks and pedestrian bridges. Today, the Venice Canals are a popular tourist attraction. They are a prime example of California's hidden gems.

VENICE, CA — The Golden State is known for its beautiful beaches that draw people from all over the world to come visit, and according to a new study from hotel company Westgate Resorts Venice Beach is among America's most picturesque beaches.

The study analyzed the number of Instagram hashtags for the most visited beaches across the country and then compared the numbers with each beach's length to calculate which beaches had the highest number of hashtags per meter.

With 4,828 meters in length, Venice Beach placed fourth on the list of most Instagrammable beaches in the country. According to the study, there were a whopping 4,341,671 hashtags at the beach, totaling 899 hashtags per meter at the Los Angeles County beach.

"It’s the most popular tourist attraction in Los Angeles and the second most in Southern California, behind only Disneyland," Westgate Resorts said.

With just 86 meters in length, La Jolla topped the list of most Instagrammable beaches in the country despite being the smallest beach in the top 10.

Three more California beaches made the resort's list including Laguna Beach, which placed third. Just missing the top five, Neighboring beaches Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach placed sixth and seventh on the list respectively.

South Beach in Florida placed second on the nationwide list and Sandy Beach in Hawaii rounded out the top five.

"Spending time at the beach is the foundation for any good memory, with this study highlighting which beaches have made a lasting impact on social media users. With social media become such an integral factor in where we choose to spend our time, this study provides a fascinating insight into the locations around the country that offer the most picturesque backdrop to our photos and treasured memories," a Westgate Resorts spokesperson said.

With the holiday season in full swing, Westgate Resorts launched a competition that allows anyone who submits a photo of a memorable moment for a chance to win $1,200. Whether the photo is of the beach, a concert or a family vacation, any happy memory uploaded to the resort's website has a chance to win.

Venice Beach is constantly changing, but is it for the better or worse?

Venice Beach is a place of culture and art. It has always been a central hub for artists to express themselves freely however they please, through photography, painting murals or physical movement like skateboarding or surfing. Venice’s streets are full of artists of all types exhibiting their work on the streets.

You look left and see a green spray paint mural done by Muck Rock or a house designed by Frank Gehry. There are constantly pop ups and events located all around the narrow, dog-filled streets of Venice Beach, California for artists to preserve the culture of Venice Beach.

But is the culture we’re trying to look after being stripped? Is it too late to stop?

Abbot Kinney, which used to only consist of small local shops and was known for its unique stores and rows of palm trees, has now been infested with chain stores, making the stores its main pull factor. When the first “chain,” an ice cream shop called N’ice Cream arrived on Abbot Kinney, protests occurred. The community didn’t want a parasite placed on this iconic street. Soon enough, in a blink of an eye, buildings and shops that made Venice Venice were being stripped away and replaced by concrete neon lights.

Some places have lasted throughout this culture-ripping crusade like Venice Beach Wines owned by Oscar Hermosillo, a dear friend of my family. It’s an iconic restaurant on Rose that has sold wine and charcuteries on a street that used to be sketchy, but now is flourishing.

Do I think it’s changing for better or worse? Personally as someone who’s lived in Venice my whole life, I’m torn. The new shops are bringing in new wealth, making Venice a safer and cleaner space. But on the contrary, we are losing the mom-and-pop shops, restaurants and art that is the DNA of Venice Beach.

When we begin to see Venice’s values change, such as getting rid of these stores, something is changing in our neighborhood that we must be aware of. It feels as if they have dropped a large sponge soaking up and absorbing all of the places that have made up and built my childhood.

Whole Foods used to be purely a health haven and grocery store full of happy, inspired people and potentially your favorite body builder. It has shifted to a tech grocery store now owned by Amazon where you pay with a scan of your palm. Memories of me walking in at 8 a.m. in my pajamas getting breakfast with my dad in his Defender all now have a different meaning because of the value shift at Whole Foods.

Next door Thomas’s Hamburgers with the yellow and red paint, has now been torn to the ground losing all of its joyful customers coming on a Sunday morning to play with the claw machines and talk to their favorite chef they’ve built a connection with throughout the years they’ve been dining there.

Venice’s new wave has tried to steal its deep-rooted heritage by funding chains that buy out classic stores causing them to lose money and be forced to move. To fix this, we must carefully gentrify our neighborhood without ransacking its history.

Gentrification is a double-edged sword—use it wisely.

VENICE, CA — Chilly overnight temperatures are set to continue this week across Los Angeles County as a new weather system is expected to bring coastal flooding and high surf to Venice Beach along with a chance of rain, according to the National Weather Service.

Light rain is possible across LA County Wednesday night, with the greatest chance of precipitation in the mountains and San Gabriel Valley. "Rainfall totals should be one quarter of an inch or less in most areas," the NWS wrote.

Highs Thursday will be six to 12 degrees below normal across the region, before temperatures warm slightly on Friday, the NWS said.

A High Surf advisory for LA County beaches is in effect from 3 p.m. Wednesday until 3 p.m. Thursday and a Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect from 4 a.m. to noon Thursday.

Large, breaking waves up to eight feet are expected along with dangerous rip currents, the NWS said.

"Flooding of sea water is likely, around the time of high tide, over vulnerable low-lying coastal areas such as parking lots, beaches and walkways," the NWS wrote. "There is an increased risk for ocean drowning. Rip currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Large breaking waves can cause injury, wash people off beaches and rocks, and capsize small boats near shore."

Across LA County, "the main impact from this system will be the widespread strong (and) possibly damaging west to northwest winds beginning late Wednesday," the NWS wrote.

The mountains and valleys are expected to see the most wind; a High Wind Warning will be in effect from 4 p.m. Wednesday until noon Thursday. Winds between 30 to 40 mph are expected along with gusts of up to 70 mph. Isolated gusts up to 80 mph are also possible, according to the NWS.

The warning covers the San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley, San Gabriel Mountains and eastern Santa Monica Mountains.

High winds are also expected in Malibu and the eastern San Gabriel Mountains, according to the NWS.

Overnight lows below freezing are expected again Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in the valleys and high desert. A Freeze Warning is in effect between midnight and 10 a.m. Wednesday in Calabasas and Agoura Hills, where temperatures are expected to drop to at least 31 degrees for an extended period, according to the NWS.

The chill isn't expected to be as deep or as widespread as it was early Tuesday morning, when the NWS recorded lows in the mid-20s in the Antelope Valley and low to upper 30s in the San Fernando Valley. The LA County coast saw temps in the mid-40s; it hit 44 degrees at LAX.

LOS ANGELES — If you are looking to get in shape or just show off your shape, Muscle Beach in Venice, California is not only a popular place to do it but also very affordable.

Almost all the equipment at the Los Angeles area park is free to use. It is, however, a little primitive, but for the last 20 years David Frison, or "Soop" as he is known, has made a name for himself here.

“Everybody calls me Soop because I body double for Superman, for example,” said Frison.

Frison is stunt man and he’s punched, kicked and flipped his way on the big screen by training at Muscle Beach. He says the equipment has a long history of shaping actors and athletes.

“Two miles north of here is the original Muscle Beach, which started in 1933 with the acrobats and adagio,” said Frison.

During the Great Depression, the original Muscle Beach started at sandy shores near the Santa Monica Piers. It became a playground for pioneering fitness enthusiasts and gymnasts, but in the late 50s the city shut the beach down.

“Body builders in Santa Monica were looking for a place a little south,” said Frison.

Venice Beach became the new home for Muscle Beach. It was here that body builders of all ages and genders got their start.

“What I think is most attractive about Venice Beach is the open-minded people and lack of judgment,” said Frison.

The lack of judgment not only attracted visitors but also Hollywood filmmakers.

White Men Can't Jump, a very famous movie, filmed behind me at the basketball court.”

Countless movies, TV shows and commercials are filmed in Venice and Muscle Beach, and it’s not uncommon to see a celebrity on the beach walk.

“Our ex-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger comes here at least twice a month,” said Frison.

Despite the well-used equipment, Muscle Beach is a California icon where people from all over the world feel welcome.

“It’s freedom. If there is one thing everyone wants is to be free. Free of extra weight, stress and you feel that in Venice,” said Frison.
