    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!

    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: http://www.parkme.com/los-angeles-parking

    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.

    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.

    Lots of sun, people watching, and all types of local shops to explore and enjoy the outdoors. For a couple miles you can walk, ride bikes, roller blade, and hang out with natives and tourists alike. Stop by one of the many restaurants along the boardwalk and watch the sun set over the bay.

    The beach scene is not really my cup of tea without the rest of the crew. I can stomach it by myself for so long till I get bored. Fortunately I am running through here with my sisters. It is alright weather and I walk in and out a couple of stores. There's a number of shops that I wouldn't mind getting ink'd at but then I remind myself that there are a number of world renowned places to go else where in LA. Over all the area is ok. Would I come back... perhaps when the weather gets better.

    So here I am walking down the boardwalk minding my own business. Howeve as we are about to leave I hear an ever faint beat. I look around and I see a fire about 100 yards out onto the beach. I walk closer where the sand meets the pavement and listen.
    .
    .
    .
    *rave music and a bunch of half naked folks dancing around the fire
    chanting... "ZION ZION ZION!"
    *I say to myself...
    "that's nice."
    .
    .
    .
    and then continue on my merry lil way.
    ;D
