The Venice Garden & Home tour is a beautiful way to spend the day and really soak in the true California feeling! For the past 20 years, people have come from all over the world to not only get a peek inside some of the most beautiful homes and brilliantly creative landscapes that Abbott Kinney Blvd has to offer, but they also get the chance to take part in an annual fundraising event benefiting the children of the Neighborhood Youth Association. The NYA is an organization founded in 1906 that has since then enhanced the lives of thousands of under-privileged children, youth and their families.
The mission here is not only to celebrate the great american neighborhood tradition of peace and friendliness that is still alive in places like Venice, but it is to help fund an association that is serving the lives of kids who aren’t as blessed as others.
On Saturday, May 4th from 10 am to 5 pm, the tour will give you access to 30 of the most unique homes and gardens in the Abbott Kinney area, giving you a first hand look at some great workings from the best local designers and most creative homeowners. The tour is $60 (tax deductable) and begin at1016 Pleasant View Avenue (between California and Broadway) in Venice.
