Do you have cribs?
How close is "close to the beach?"
Hi Craig. I agree with Roddy who stated it was approx an easy 3 miles to the beach. Once you get on Venice Ave, go west and it's only a short distance to Venice Beach. It's a small quiet beach that has beach patrol on site and people friendly...Enjoy!!
