    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.

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.
