Venice Beach is three-mile stretch of beach and boardwalk famous for its street performers, artisans and funky shops - a unique mix found no place else. Venice was founded on July 4th 1905 by Abbot Kinney, a real estate entrepreneur. He modeled it after Venice, Italy with its canals, colonnades, artists and entertainers. Visitors flock to Venice to people watch and shop along Ocean Front Walk. The creative diversity, free spirit and beautiful beach setting of Venice make it one of the most popular attractions of Southern California. Venice is full of activity at all times of the day or year. You can take part in an intense game of basketball at one of the courts, enjoy a round of paddle tennis, watch a body builder competition on Muscle Beach, or head to the beach and enjoy the waves along with the many local surfers. You will see a wide variety of both locals and tourists enjoying the ongoing activities. Among the sidewalk performers who take their place along the boardwalk "circus" are musicians, mimes, magicians, fortune tellers, sand sculptors, painters, prophets, tattoo artists and more. There are also many shops where you can purchase unique souvenirs, T-shirts, or if you are hungry, grab some "beach eats."
