Developer Abbot Kinney modeled the canals and bridges in this historic district on those in Venice, Italy. Though they were a sensation when they were built in 1905 (gondolas and all), the canals fell out of fashion and into disrepair by 1940—many of the original ones were paved over—but a major spruce-up in the early 1990’s restored the remaining canals to their former glory. The peaceful district is ideal for a stroll to take in the lovely homes lining the waterways and for photo-ops on the charming pedestrian bridges.
