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.

This was our second visit in 10 years to Muscle Beach. We enjoy the various athletic equipment ie: the rings, balance beam, ropes etc. We also enjoyed watching the skateboarders in the skate park. Would recommend this for couples as well as families.

Quite simply dont bother going , if you do go carry on walking to venice beach keep tight hold of your wallet or handbag and take in the 1960 s atmosphere, then do yourself a favour and walk back to your hotel along the waters edge.

We strolled down to the pier on a Sunday afternoon and stumbled on the fun at the beach. This was GREAT entertainment and was something we'd never seen before. It is definitely a "piece of California" and captures the feel and vibe of the California obsession with fitness and body physique.

If you enjoy the beach people sowing off their over developed bodies this is the place to go. However the surrounding area is where the old Los Angeles beach meets the newer and fun beach area that's lots of fun. The Santa Monica pier, with its carnival atmosphere and rides for the kids, is a great place to spend a few hours. Walk along the beach and the up on the palisades, watch the people, get some sun and end your visit with oysters and other bites along with a glass of wine at one of the many restaurants on the ocean front. A great way to keep you and the kids busy for an afternoon
