The southern Californian community of Venice has for decades been famous for its vibrant subcultures and offbeat way of living, and Venice Beach and Boardwalk is no exception. One of Los Angeles’ most legendary spots, the beach is packed with people from all walks of life. Stroll along the boardwalk to pass numerous street performers, food stalls, and artists selling their wares. You can also watch anglers on the fishing pier, surfers battling the swell, and some of LA’s fittest residents working out at Muscle Beach. Make sure you leave enough time to sunbathe on the soft sand and dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean. A visit to Venice Beach and Boardwalk represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Los Angeles trip builder app to plot your vacation.

Venice Beach and Boardwalk Reviews
Jolie front de mer avec jetée. Le plus joli est la partie de Venice avec les canaux. Balade matinale avec belle lumière et peu de monde more »Nice waterfront with pier. The prettiest part of Venice with the canals. Morning walk with beautiful light and few people
Jolie balade le long de Venice Beach jusqu’à Santa Monica. Quelques agrès le long de muscl Beach. Les cabanes des sauveteurs en mer sont les mêmes qu’à Malibu. Belle et longue plage. more »Nice walk along Venice Beach to Santa Monica. A few tackles along Muscl Beach. The cabins of lifeguards at sea are the same as in Malibu. Beautiful and long beach.
Pets are allowed here only on the boardwalk, not on the beach. They need to be on leash. Great location by the beach to get souvenirs, jewelry, hats, clothes, psychic palm readings, paintings etc.. There are a few restaurants too on the boardwalk. Our puppy enjoyed the walk very much. I got cool cotton elephant pants. Weather was perfect for a afternoon stroll.
What an experience. Glad we stopped. It is an awesome beach. Never a dull moment. Every step has something to see. Truly a people watching beach. The most fun I ever had just walking. Super famous beach!
