Crowds gather in restaurants and bars. Food trucks line the street. Shoppers check out the medical marijuana and clothing stores. Bicyclists roll up and down the boulevard. Abbot Kinney is Venice's vibrant artery, but it isn't known to be a quiet and peaceful oasis. For that, you need to walk a few blocks East and once there, you'll find a very different Venice.

The walkstreets found along the Boardwalk, canals and in the neighboring Marina Peninsula have their own feel, but nothing are like the ones found tucked between Lincoln and Abbot Kinney. Making up just over a mile in length, the four narrow pathways take you between uniquely designed homes, some with equally stunning gardens and landscapping. Quirky poems by neighborhood children hang from select tree limbs, art dangles in front yards and cats scatter as you approach.
