Trip Planner: USA / California / Los Angeles / Venice Beach and Boardwalk

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.

Wow. Experiences such beautiful views and a wonderful time. Rode motor bikes along the beach and it felt like a movie. It didn’t come out pricey at all. So much food places available! Stores for shirts and other memorabilia. There’s parking places available but you do have yo pay, however, it’s right on the beach. There is a lot of people selling, performing, and just there. Pet friendly. They do have a renting place for scooters and bikes but there are other ones on the street. We used those for less. Soooo pretty.
The midday experience was nothing extraordinary. Multiples food options. Various other shops. Anyone really recommending tasting something from there? I didn’t really enjoy the bacon dog either. Mhhh… need to experience it at sunset next time and see how it goes!
Beautiful walking area and has a lot of cool art, sights and weirdos to keep you entertained. Very safe to walk around.
It's a nice place to go with friends! Some people play volleyball at the beach. Also, along the beach, there are many stores where you could take a look.
This is the place to be with so much to do and so many things to see. Parking was super easy on street but if there isn’t space, you can guarantee there is a parking lot available. The sand is fairly clean and the general area not too bad. The skate park is great if you just like to watch the skilled attempts of those skating. There’s many places to eat and drink if that’s your thing.
