Freaky is a good description of a walk along this strip of beach but Bike riding superb. Lots of choices to indulge your throwback days in terms of dress and shops. Best part is bike riding which is further out from walkers/shop areas and only a couple of miles to Santa Monica Pier. And Sunsets to marvel at while having a Gelato--what's not to love??

Walked along this way walkway for a short distance, could not tolerate the smell of weed and urine, people approaching and trying to sell things. Homeless tent people living all along the walkway, so very sad to see. Very dirty, the outhouse bathroom facility was the most disgusting thing I've ever had to use. Muscle beach was nothing to look at, skateboard area was entertaining. Tourist gift shops all along the path. Parking areas nearby and cost $15 for 3 hours or $20 for the day. Would not go again, once is more than enough!

This place is fun, specially on weekends. If you don't mind the crowd, this is a great place to enjoy music, shows, food and just people watch. rent a bike and go up to Santa Monica and back.

I just had the best time cycling along this boardwalk. I stayed in Marina del Rey so cycled to Santa Monica most days, it’s probably the thing I miss most. The people, the sights, the ocean, the mountains, so much to take in and all at your own pace. Brilliant!

Venice Beach is a smorgasbord of people and experiences. From the smell of weed wafting over the boardwalk to the homeless rodeo opposite the shops, it's an experience not to be missed. You've got music, muscle men, acrobats, hustlers, losers, tourists, wannabes, weirdo's and everything in between. Go there and enjoy the best people watching in the world!
