    I can't believe i don't come here more often, there is just so much to see !

    Its a great place to go for a nice, simple date or just to go somewhere to clear your thoughts!
    Ive been to Venice a couple times before but I forgot about all the culture and the interesting community that Venice has to offer.

    Walk down the boardwalk and you get the interesting mixed of different artist with original pieces of art work. Music playing in the background that you can't help but sing a long, all at the same time basking in the warm sun !

    Than walk towards the beach, sit along the shoreline and watch the sun set, you can't help but smile from ear to ear and breath in the salty atmosphere!

    Always entertaining and whimsical, Venice can make you feel out of this world. Take a walk on the Boardwalk and you’ll see various street performers juggling, dancing, singing or haggling. Step away to the beach for some peace and quiet. You may even spot a few dolphins swimming very close to the shore.

    OK, so as someone who lived in Santa Monica for 5 1/2 years, I generally tried to avoid the Venice Boardwalk in my day to day life. But when people came from out of town, this is a must see destination. It is crowded with people - rollerskating electric guitar players, people in American Flag speedos with boa constrictors around their necks, tourists, locals and all sorts of other people. There are tons of shops - mostly tshirt shops catering to tourists but there are a few gems tucked amongst the stalls. You can watch skaters doing tricks on the skate ramps, people playing handball, and every night at sunset there is a giant hippy drum circle which is definitely worth looking at.

    This is another quirky and funky area in LA. Come here to people watch, it's fun.

    Shop on Abbott Kinney, people watch on the boardwalk, take in the sunset. It's free and highly entertaining, but watch your wallet and park wisely.

    So much to see at Venice Beach! It's not my favorite L.A. beach for actual sunbathing and playing in the water, but more for the people watching and the boardwalk. Bring your camera and check out all the characters selling random crafts and all types of people skateboarding and rollerblading in the sun.

    A must for anyone in the area! Venice beach is so entertaining and the water is beautiful in the summer. So many great acts here as well as local culture shopping.

Description

The World famous Venice Beach Boardwalk is not to be missed. If you are visiting the Los Angeles area, you owe it to yourself to come to Southern California's number one visitor attraction. Stretching about one a half miles along the manicured sands of the Pacific Ocean, the boardwalk is a large part of what makes Venice unique.
