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.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.

Located just minutes south of the Santa Monica pier Venice Beach is a great place to play in the sand or enjoy the amazing 1 1⁄2 mile long boardwalk. On the west side of the "walk" are hundreds of street vendors and performers.

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.Recommended for:

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.

Venice Beach is the quintessential southern California beach. There's lots to do and lots to watch other California free-spirit types do. The area around it caters to tourists, which is fine.

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.Recommended for:

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-parkingRecommended for:

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!Recommended for:
