great shops, best free attractions, beautiful venice beach, amazing collaboration, great spot, good deals, unique walk
The boardwalk strip full of restaurants, bars and the best people-watching around..
Tourists and locals of all shapes, sizes and piercings cruise this renowned boardwalk at all hours. Weekends are the busiest, from the turban-wearing, guitar-playing man on rollerskates weaving in and out of the crowds to the oiled-up hard bodies passing by the tattooed set. Find everything from tie-dyed T-shirts to advice from the self-proclaimed "world's greatest wino/sex counselor." Street performers juggle chainsaws and ride unicycles in front of beachfront cafes and shops peddling typical souvenirs.
EYEGASM!!!!. Hot chicks everywhere!!!! Crazy people singin' songs and sellin' things... Its an amazing collaboration of souls all being free on the beautiful Venice beach!!! There's good smoke shops all around-and cheap too...Did I mention the HOTTIES!!!
Free and Fun. One of the best free attractions in LA (well, if you dont count the money youll invariably pay to park), this is a great spot for tourists and locals alike. It can be a great place to get together with old friends, to go on an inexpensive date or just to relax in the summer sun. Check out all the freaks, the bodybuilders and everyone in between. Tourists can get good deals on all sorts of souveniers and t-shirts, but do shop around a little before making a purchase
Venice Beach Anything Goes!. Talk about your eclectic group of people. This unique walk along the beach offers it all. Shopping, food, muscle beach, bike riding and roller blading etc From the early morning continuing until dusk this area is teaming with the unusual and the strange. The normal ones, those are the usually the tourists. Bring your bike or skates and travel along the bike path into Santa Monica to the pier and back for a great workout along the shore. Take your patience with you if you intend to walk because the crowds can be a trying experience. Get there early since parking is a hot commodity.
Summers in cali rock!. Muscles, and Arms and Legs Oh My! I am a cali girl till I die. Nothing like the beaches in the Summer, the guys come from far and wide to see the Girls so ladies go and give them something to see!
Hidden shopping treasures. Good place to get an eye-full of TVs California. Lots of bikinis, street performers, artisans and gawkers. It's a fun mix of people, but have patience as the flow of foot traffic can be trying. Rent a bike and get a different view of the beach trail. A little hidden shopping area has some great shops with ethnic jewelry and great, non-chain clothing. Hit them up mid-season for some bargains.
