Venice Beach Boardwalk - Review
Venice in the Westside of Los Angeles is situated as a largely decorated region facing the beach. Its prime features are a vast network of manmade canals and sea beach, a long stretch of pavement featuring various performers, artistry, foretellers, fancy dressers, and other carriers of entertainment.
Venice of Los Angeles has developed as a major attraction and vibrant place for tourists and international visitors. Moreover, it has also been a community featuring and promoting social liberations of mainly the native West-siders. It also carries out a largely considerate charity through running the largest free service offering clinic in the world- the Venice Family Clinic.
The other main attractions have been the Abbot Kinney Boulevard – which houses a stretch of stores, restaurants and other facilities , the Venice Post Office, the Venice beach, Oakwood, and a variety of other social assistance and recreation services.

Venice Beach Boardwalk, Los Angeles Reviews
The Venice Beach Boardwalk has been a gravitational point for sub-culture in the US for decades. While there are dozens of tourist traps, enjoying a sunset by the skate park is still worth every minute. I haven’t found any decent places to eat or drink on the beach, but there are plenty within walking distance. Especially the food trucks on Abbot Kinney, all with an amazing selection of food. I find there are now too many e-scooters in Venice Beach and they need to be cleaned up. Still love the area
Loved the boardwalk. Muscle beach was entertaining. Street performers were also fun to watch. They have a lot of shops and small vendors along the walk. You can probably find any souvenir you could think of. I'd recommend walking down the whole way and then stopping to buy what you're looking for. The first couple shops put a lot of pressure on you to buy from them but in reality there are maybe a dozen other ones just like them with cheaper prices or better deals. I really enjoyed walking down and just taking everything that Venice beach is. Would definitely go down again. And laying in the beach afterwards was heavenly.
Venice Beach is a wonderful place for children and adults. It allows parents the luxury of watching young and older children frolic in the water right in front of them. It also provides a variety of entertainment such as skaters, basketball games, gymnastic performers, musical talent, and magicians at times. Bike and scooter rentals are offered at a minimal fee. A variety of eateries are provided along the sand line . Parking requires a minimal search for that "perfect" parking space... Unfortunately the public restrooms leave a lot to be desired. If you're going to utilize the restrooms, travel toilet seat covers are recommended.
Simply one of the coolest places on Earth. Gorgeous weather year round, shops, restaurants, art, music, entertainment, unique artisans, dozens of ways to be physically active...people watching...it just an explosion of humanity and creativity. There are so many people here who are so good at so many different niche talents, it inspires to think about what your role in life should be. Always a little weirdness going on. Venice Beach has a crazy happy vibe that's like you died and woke up in Heaven. Frequent artifacts referencing legends of yesteryear like Monroe, Morrison and Hendrix reinforce that impression.
It's everything you expect from the movies. Cool shops, people on bikes, gay dudes on roller blades, body builders, street performers, novelty acts. Parking cost us around 20$ at a private lot. Get your inner city mindset ready for all the guys hustling for cash, trying to push their CDs on you. The beach is actually quite a way from the boardwalk (100 meters maybe), which was a bit surprising. Cool experience though with a lot of novelty shops.
