(VIDEO) Explore the Canals of Venice Beach
A tour of the last remaining canals in Venice Beach California. Many of the streets in Venice were once canals, and only one small section of canals are still around today. Officially known as the "The Venice Canal Historic District" it's comprised of six canals, approximately one and a half miles in length, and fifty feet in width, and are laid out in a grid. Nine footbridges provide access within the canals. The canals’ ocean water comes from the Marina del Rey and is controlled by tidal gates. The Canals are listed on the National and City of Los Angeles Registry of Historical Places.
Fun, informative, and entertaining travel guides hosted by Chris Raney. I got started making online travel videos in 2004 to share with friends and family, but shortly thereafter I took to YouTube in 2008. I spend hours every week researching & shooting informative videos to allow curious travelers to make informed decisions about where to go, where to stay, what to eat, and what to do in a destination. My goal is to be as DETAILED and INFORMATIVE as possible while still being FUN! I’m a resident and native of Southern California, but I can often be seen traveling the world and reviewing hotels with my panda buddy & co-star “Topher.” He is the other half of my name, Chris + Topher = Christopher.
