Abbot Kinney

It is Abbot Kinney, tobacco baron, who imagined Venice Beach. In 1905, he created in this part of Los Angeles a relaxation and pleasure area with canals reminiscent of the Italian Venice. This is not to talk about this man that I write but to make you discover the boulevard that bears his name. According to GQ magazine is « the coolest block of America » and I quite agree! There is a mix of young designers, crafts, design, fashion and street art in a relaxed seaside vibes. Here are some places that I particularly liked
