|Abbot Kinney Boulevard, named after Venice's visionary founder, is a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon. The street is both casual and cosmopolitan.
Located a five blocks east of the beach, between Venice Boulevard and Main Street, Abbot Kinney is home to an eclectic array of shops, art galleries, furniture stores and restaurants ... there are over 50 establishments on the mile long block ... plus some new artist-in-residence studios.A sample of what's in store includes antique and collectible furniture (sometimes rare pieces from Charles Eames whose studio was on Abbot Kinney), outstanding designer clothing, Fabulous 50's furniture, folk art, toys, and home accessories. Then there are also funky coffeehouses and five star restaurants. Abbot Kinney has a character all it's own.
