We head out to Venice for the shark teeth every year, but this was our first walk out on the pier. Sharky's is under construction to expand but we didn't let that slow us down. You do have to walk through the restaurant and right by people eating their food to get out on the pier, but it's free. Plenty of fishermen out, which was nice to see, but stinky. I always love piers because you can look back to land and get a different view of the area but I didn't want to stay long out on Venice Pier. It was dirty, obviously a fishing pier. Probably wouldn't take the time to visit this pier again but glad I took this opportunity.
