Later, with the popularity of automobiles, many canals were filled into roads in 1929. In 1982, the residential area surrounding the Legacy Canal was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The canal was renovated in 1992 and reopened in 1993.
Venice is a colorful neighborhood with eclectic shops, cafés, and scenic beaches, home to Beat Generation poets and artists, and an important cultural center in Los Angeles, with many unique and Vibrant activities and attractions.
