The Ultimate Guide to Moving to Venice

Venice was founded in the early 1900’s by a tobacco millionaire, Abbot Kinney. The area was originally a beach resort set on two miles of ocean front property. It was an independent city until 1926 when it merged with Los Angeles. Home to a vibrant surfing and skate culture, Venice maintains an edgy coolness that has long attracted the city’s free spirits.

With ocean exposure, a boardwalk that stretches over two miles, an endless parade of street performers, and classic Californian architecture, Venice is among the city’s hottest neighborhoods. Over the past several years, a slew of artists, restauranteurs, and designers have entered Venice, imbuing the area with a creative, innovative sensibility.
