Abott Kinney Boulevard is one of the hippest streets in Los Angeles and the perfect spot for (window-) shopping, people watching and dining in Venice Beach.

“In 1990, West Washington was renamed to Abbot Kinney, after the man who built the Venice Canals. Throughout the years it has been developed by the diligence of the Merchants and the support from the growing community.

Now Abbot Kinney is not only an up and coming attraction for tourists, but it also serves as a local gathering place for west side residents. With some of the finest restaurants, unique art galleries, prestigious wine shops and exciting nightlife, it is evolving from a historical destination, to a place that is writing a new history.” source

Abbot KInney Boulevard was named “coolest block in America” by GQ Magazine in 2012.
