“Beaches”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I can't rate Venice because I never go to the boardwalk... Venice as well as All the South Bay beaches are hone , I look at them as a native not a tourist
Go in the fall .. The colors and smells are different
If you aren't from there , you won't pick up on the subtle differences but they're there

“Joy from sunning and walking around”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This place is one of the most popular scene in Los Angeles. Sometimes it is really overcrowded however this is must see place. I like to just walk around. On street you can see a lot of street artist which create incredible atmosphere.

“A Great Cultural Experience!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

My husband and I visited as a part of our trip to LA. I loved, loved, LOVED seeing so many artists, unique shops, and street performers in one place along the beach. The atmosphere is like nothing I have ever experienced before. My only regret is that we didn't allow ourselves enough time to spend there. We could have easily have spent an entire day there.

“Get bikes”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Venice was great with all of the vendors and people to see. Get a bike so you can ride up the bike path and make sure you get a lock as well because you will want to make stops. Travel up to Santa Monica on the path and hang out at the pier
