Among the city’s hottest neighborhoods, it is home to a vibrant surf and skate culture. Venice locals enjoy the town’s creative atmosphere, the lively food scene, and the shoreline. With perhaps some of the best waves on the Southern California coast, Venice beaches draw ocean enthusiasts from every corner of the city. While the beach and boardwalk see their share of crowds, its residential streets sometimes provide a quiet respite. Homes in Venice are predominantly modern and beautifully designed whether one opts for a condo or a single-family home. The lots tend to be smaller compared to other LA neighborhoods, giving it that beach town vibe.
