I spent a lot of time looking for accommodation to stay at in LA. Not knowing much about LA, I initially began looking around the West Hollywood and Beverley Hills area. Eventually I decided to check out the beach areas and I am really glad I did.
Venice Breeze Suites are really clean, bright, full of character and a chilled out place to stay. Their location right on the boardwalk in the thick of it all was also great. We had a 4th floor studio at the top and back of the building, which was really quiet but still with views of the beach.
Venice Beach blew my mind - it totally exceeded my expectations. It is one of the craziest places I have ever visited - in a good way! Anything goes at Venice Beach, it's full of super friendly people and there's never any shortage of things to do or look at. Try to stay on a weekend as its a completely mad and unforgettable experience. Venice Beach is way more fun than Santa Monica, although Santa Monica is probably better for families.
What I thought was just going to be just a pit stop to get over my jet lag on route to New York turned out to be an awesome experience. Thank you Venice Beach and LA - I am now a huge fan!More
