Do you think we’ve suddenly mistaken Los Angeles for Italy?
Well, we’re not crazy! There truly is a real version of the Venice Canals right here in Los Angeles!
The amazing Venice Canal Historical District is a series of man-made canals dating back to 1905 but has been kept modern due to the extremely fancy homes lining them. The developer of the area, the famous Abbot Kinney, wanted to re-create the look and feel of Venice, Italy right in the beautiful sunshine of Los Angeles.
These houses feature some of the nicest gardens, patios, and architecture you’ll see in LA!
Happy Saturday! Sunny skies and windy today! Santa Ana's have returned, so we will warm up day by day, hitting 80 degrees for the Valley/I.E. by Monday. Another round of rain arrives late next week. Thanks to #abc7eyewitness @debodoes for this stunning shot of the Venice canals! Meteorologist @abc7leslielopez has your weekend forecast on Eyewitness News 8am-9:30am on ABC7 and abc7.com/live
Don’t forget the bridges that you can walk across—they make for awesome photo ops!
