Venice Reviews

All Categories
We’ve lived in Venice for 24 years now and can’t imagined living any place else. It was still a little gritty when we moved here but coming from Brooklyn I was able to recognize what was just a little rough around the edges and what was truly dangerous.

Yes it had a higher than average crime rate at the time BUT it had a vibrant art scene and bohemian feel, I could live walking distance to the beach and unlike a lot of Los Angeles in the early ‘90’s it had a real neighborhood feel. My neighbors not only knew each other but looked out for each other.

Having been “discovered” and branded one of the “coolest neighborhoods” in the country has had its positives and negatives. On the up side even more restaurants and cool shops are moving in and Crome is WAY down but it’s now an expensive trendy place where my kids can’t afford rent let alone a mortgage.

I have been living in Venice for about 2 years now and I can say that it has its pros and cons. Venice has a reputation for being dirty but seems to be trying to clean up the area. Lincoln is the main road that has most of the traffic along with Venice and Washington. Being about 2 miles from the beach is great but with the amount of tourists in the area is just a nuisance. A lot of crime usually involves the homeless. I cant see raising a family in this type of area with all the commotion in the community. Real estate is hard to find with prices up on the rise. Venice is a diverse area with plenty of nightlife. To me, Venice is a place for tourists and wealthy individuals.
Recently visiting Venice for a birthday vacation I had high expectations. Was I disappointed? YES!!! There were a lot of great things about Venice, such as the beach and restaurants, but the city was soooo filthy!!! Sadly, there are a lot of homeless people along the beach that also have dogs leaving an awful smell because of lack of cleanliness. I would be very disappointed if I owned one of the multi-million dollar homes and had someone ruining my front flower beds and property value. If visiting that area I recommend going further from Venice maybe towards Santa Monica where it is much nicer and safer.
