Los Angeles Magazine's "Best Walking Tour of 2012" is the only Venice walking tour using more than 100 years of film clips shown on an iPad to make long-gone roller coasters, canals and movie stars spring back to life before your eyes. You'll spend the day with Charlie Chaplin, Jim Morrison, Arnold Schwarzenegger and others as you visit each film location with Jonathan Kaplan, tour guide for the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation, TV writer and 17-year Venice resident. After seeing where Chaplin put on his derby and mustache for the first time in 1914, as well as the place where Morrison spent the summer of 1965 writing poetry on a rooftop, the tour will head to the beach to see modern Venice's bike path, skate park, graffiti pit, Muscle Beach and basketball courts -- and you'll also learn what was there before. Then it's on to the canals, where 1920s bungalows sit side-by-side with modern mansions, all surrounded by Venice's famous ducks. Learn More

This tour guide is very passionate about Venice. His visual effect is superb. The history of the neighborhood is incredible... When is the dates for the next walking tours? Am encouraging friends and families to go .... wear comfortable shoes.
Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring sun protection (hat, sunscreen) and water.
The tour begins and ends in front of 1601 Main Street. This is the (closed) Venice Post Office on the Traffic Circle at the intersection of Windward Avenue. The address is obscured by construction, but this is the only building on the Traffic Circle under construction.
There are no restrooms at the beginning of the tour, and the first restroom stop is at least one our into the tour.
