    A must see venue if you haven't been before but not a spot that you need to visit often. It get's really crowded and the stores get repetitive too so its not so much for shopping. A good place to see the local LA culture. For easy parking go here:

    Venice's original 16 miles of canals have been reduced to an affluent grid bounded by South Venice Boulevard and Ocean Avenue, 28th Avenue and Pacific Avenue. When you become bored with the Boardwalk, a trip to the canals will be soothing.

    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 ...

    I absolutely love the Wednesday Farmers' Market. When I used to work down the street, I would go every week and usually end up buying way too much delicous fresh fruit and veg. Now I go there for specific things or during the seasons for my favorite fruits. Try the Charlynne melons during the summer months, or white peaches. My ...

    Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea

    I didn't like the Intelligentsia coffee in Pasadena, and I'm not a fan of it here. The one thing the do have going for them is space. There's plenty of seating area at the Venice branch, which is great for meeting people or studying. Please note: Intelligentsia coffee is an acquired taste...I just never acquired it.

    Sara and her husband Ciroc are awesome hosts! The food is incredible with much of it coming from Sara's mom's recipes. Meet some great locals at this neighborhood hangout. Very nice wine selection by the glass as well. Will definitely make this a new regular hangout!

    Pacific Park is located at the end of Santa Monica Pier. It's a typical amusement park with rides and carnival games. It's cute, but VERY crowded.

    This is a great beach to have a picnic, play in the sand, or play in the ocean. There are even fire pits if you want to make some smores at night. It's not a huge beach, so it can get a little crowded with people during the summer, but it's fine if you're not looking to play sports on ...

    what a chilling place to be with a group of your friends. Best time to come and to sit outside is during sunset! Beautiful, cozy, breezy . We were here for a meeting dinner and the ambiance just made it a bit too relaxing to talk about business. We popped open a bottle of Prosecco and from then on it ...

    Some claim that bodybuilding started here, at any rate its still going on. Watch bodybuilders pump iron from benches and bleachers. There's also basketball & handball courts, as well as paddle tennis. After working-up a sweat, there are many places to find refreshments, food, and many other items for your shopping enjoyment!

    One of the very few true IMAX theaters in Los Angeles. The ambiance is definitely better than your usual mall multiplex, they even have a bar so you can grab a drink before settling in for your IMAX movie.
