I don't know if this makes me a hipster but I love Abbot Kinney. The little boutiques, the coffee shops, the vintage vibe of some of the places....

perfect for shopping and dinning. Shop for men, women, babies and your home. All modern and hip fashions. This area is targeting those who are fashion forward and willing to invest some money to look and live an aspirational lifestyle.

One of my favorite places to be. Day or night, there's always something to do down here. Great eateries (Gjelina, Zinque, Lemonade), good coffe (Intellegentsia) and last but not least, shopping. Don't feel weird for people watching - you only watch because *they're* weird.

Non-touristy and full of offbeat local flavor, Abbot Kinney Blvd is just about my favorite street to amble in LA, especially to get away from the chain shops, restaurants and crowds in Santa Monica. AK Blvd is lined with independent boutique shops, art galleries, coffee bars, interesting eateries and lots of funky-beautiful people watching to boot. Parking is tight, but there are a few public pay lots if you can't find on-street parking for free in the residential side streets.

Abbot Kinney is a really cool strip near Venice Beach that's less Hollywood glitz and glamour and more hipster cool. The look of the whole area is really neat which is why I had some engagement shots taken here.

When you come to Venice Beach, there is the boardwalk - touristy, crowded, filled with shops slinging junk. And then there is Abbot Kinney - a few blocks filled with high end clothing boutiques, hipster bars and high end restaurants catering to a bit more upscale crowd. Its not on the beach, and the people watching is not quite as good, but if you want to go where the locals go, head inland a few blocks.

This is probably a must see since it's so close to your cottage. Literally walking distance; but drive if you're in heels. So much to do- great Yoga studios, galleries, cafes, restaurants, bars, boutiques etc etc. You could make this a whole day- several hours for sure.Recommended for:Spiritual Seekers

A high end street for shopping in Venice. Take La Cienega or Fairfax south to Venice Blvd., make a right turn and go west toward the ocean. You will intersect Abbot Kinney. And you can park on Venice because parking is very difficult. A lovely area to walk around. Try Lemonade Restaurant. It's casual. And my hair stylist, Marylle, has her shop there, The Harlot. And she is outstanding. But she herself is not cheap. But the shop is also open on Sundays.
