You still get a bit of the 70s art/music vibe on the Venice Boardwalk. Took the bus from the Hyatt Sunset & spent the afternoon. Fun to see the shops with souvenirs, clothes, bags, jewelry- all inexpensive. Ate at the Sidewalk Cafe, very good. Make sure to see the Jim Morrison mural -go down 18th St. Artists set up on the sidewalk to sell paintings, tell fortunes, etc. I would like to go back there & spend more time on the beach & exploring the area.
