Thanks Anna! I too may not be a dorm person anymore, but our 4 bed ocean views in Venice are a pretty sweet dorm in my opinion. Waking up to the waves, that's ok with me. Cheers,

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
