This was one of our favorite stops on our tour. We got off and checked out the skate park, which was pretty cool. A short walk away is "Muscle Beach" where you can see some people working out and and check out some basketball courts...More

Not a bad place to spend a couple hours. Reasonably priced Only a few blocks but a lot to see. I assume 20 years ago it looked a lot different.

This was on my 'to do' list and I wasn't disappointed. We hired bikes and cycled along the boardwalk passing all the sites; muscle beach, Santa Monica pier and tourist shops. Most surprising was the number of homeless people who had set up makeshift accommodation...More

I lived pretty much next door in Marina Del Rey (MDR) 30-35 years ago. Venice Beach and the concrete strand along it were an interesting walk then (or skateboard, or roller-skate/rollerblade, or bike ride on an adjacent path) and it was every bit as interesting...More

Unique shops are the order of the day at the Venice Beach Boardwalk. From surf shops, to art shops and souvenir shops, each has their own identity and fairly reasonable prices.

It's a nice place to walk and stroll. Lot's of attractive,stationery, and moving things to do. Good looking muscles on there also. If you are hunting for a mate here is your place.

If you are looking for a glimpse of the 'wild side' of Los Angeles, perhaps as a beach town, this is the place!

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
