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.

Well, am I one of the characters that you see here or just an observer - do they think I am as strange as I think they are? This is one place where strange is the norm and it is fun to see what lengths some people will go to to get noticed.

Can't beat this beach! Wide range of things to see and do! Shopping, muscle beach, surf, boogie board, bike path, etc,

Of all places I'd planned to visit while in L.A., this was the one I was most looking forward to and I absolutely LOVED it. If I were going to live anywhere else in the US, I'd want to live in Venice Beach. Someone once described it to me as seeming like you've come to the end of the world. I think that's the most apt description of it EVER.Recommended for

Off the somewhat trashy (yet loads of fun) boardwalk, lies one of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California. Truly worlds away from most of the L.A., this beach is "the beach" for many Angelinos - and just a nice, warm and sunny place to relax and have a good time.
