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.
I liked the bohemian vibe of this place at first, but it also was very shady and dirty and it smelled like urine. We couldn’t walk ten feet without people asking for money. I was excited to visit Muscle Beach but there was no one there. The street art was pretty cool though.
The culture, the vibe, the beach, the talent the skateboarding peeps have, the roller skating vibes, the rich personalities people have, so much talent in this humble, hustling community, a place where every single soul has something to offer with their uniqueness. Y'all keep doing You! Yeah, I am from Texas! I loved this spot, great vibes. 🍍☺
