Venice, L.A.

A great place for summer fun and California dreamin' on a winter's day, LA’s Venice Beach is truly unique.

“Venice” is not your typical upscale Californian beach resort and that’s not just because it has canals. Eccentric locals who never really left the 1960s may invite you to their daily community drum circle. Then there is Muscle Beach, where bodybuilders pump weights in the outdoors. The Ocean Front Walk is a circus-like boardwalk where quirky shops, street art and buskers create a dazzling show. For fashion, art and fine dining, walk along the Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
