Owner description: Weight lifters still strut their stuff at this outdoor gym where, in the 30s, 40s and 50s, crowds would gather to watch young men and women honing their bodies, some of whom, like Vic Tanny and Jack LaLanne, went on to fame in the fitness world.

Less classy than Santa Monica but still a must see if you are in the Venice area lots of souvenir shops you can still see the Muscle bound men parading but the beach and the surrounding area are beautiful and quite often there is Filming taking place a brilliant place to just sit and people watch

Ok...if you go to Venice and it is your first trip to LA this is a must stop. You get to see the often chronicled Muscle Men working out. They actually pay a gym fee for the space. Check out the rest of the strip of stores and vendors. Make a day out of it.

this is a place you have to experience and its the best on weekends.I recommend parking in santa monica and doing beach cruisers on the beach walk from santa monica to venice. You can park the bike in santa monica and do third street promenade then bike down to venice,park it at start of walk (no bikes allowed on that walk) and head down to muscle beach which is always amusing, as is everything on way to it. do this!


Mailboxblondie: adult trip there are some great pubs to dip into, if you have kids this walk may not be the best- remember they are very pro marajuana and the homeless/druggie level is high- just keep in mind if you have young kids, or you're more conservative.
