Venice Beach Boardwalk, Los Angeles Reviews - Write a Review
Being from north Texas, I don’t get much beach time. So I’m always grateful for a good beach. The street vendors and performers were great but the shops left much to be desired. Basically the same t-shirt store, weed doctor in a closet, and carnival food shack repeated over and over as far down boardwalk as I could see. We walked a good half mile or more and only saw 3 decent restaurants. All in all, super fun beach to go chill and people watch at. Bikes and skateboards galore and rental shops for bikes, skate shops, and surf shops.
I highly suggest to bring or rent a bike and casually ride up and down the beach. You can ride from north Santa Monica as far down as you like. It might seem very far but it's really not. Washington Street and the Venice Canals is a decent turnaround area with lots of options for food. I would suggest minimum two hours to fully enjoy the scenery and area.
I absolutely love Venice Beach. There is a little bit of everyone here! Of course with it being such a big tourist attraction there are many people pushing to sell items but there's also a fair amount of shops on the boardwalk if you're looking for a souvenir. The food along the boardwalk is a little pricey but it's tasty. There's a couple great patios where you can have a drink with a nice view. Don't forget there's a ton of beach to relax and watch the sunset.
Honest review I was in the area and found this place on MAPS. It has better review than others nearby. I'm into scientific evidence so when they said they test their stuff in a lab, I was impressed. When I found out the one I wanted was $16 a gram, I trusted it would be good. It was "Mmeh". A vague high. But they did give me nice sized complimentary Js which I am sampling right now. It's better than what I paid for. Definitely worth the trip this time. But apparently further studies need to be considered.
A local I met in Venice Beach described Venice as "The edgier cousin to Santa Monica." That's a very accurate statement. There's something of a very relaxed, anything goes vibe in Venice. I spent six weeks in Venice and every time I walked the boardwalk, I saw something different. The word, "Promenade" accurately describes the Venice Beach Boardwalk. If you have a dog, best to visit Before Memorial Day or right after Labor Day weekend when all restrictions are lifted.
