    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
