Venice residential neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, is known as a buzzing beach town. Venice Boardwalk is the site of funky shops, street performers, and colorful murals. There’s also a skate park and Muscle Beach outdoor gym. Stretching about one a half miles along the manicured sands of the Pacific Ocean, the boardwalk is a large part of what makes Venice unique. On the west side of the “walk” are hundreds of street vendors and performers. You can see everything from break-dancing to broken glass walking. Mimes to musicians, jugglers to jesters and everything in between. The Westside offers unique arts and crafts, odds and ends and one of a kind only obtainable here. In addition, skate and surf shops, medical marijuana dispensaries would you believe and more. This is all in addition to the large selection of restaurants, juice spots, and bars. I’m literally staying a stone’s throw from the beach. Tomorrow a film crew is setting up outside to film Goliath 2. Alec has lent me his bike for the week, so I cycle around the beach which I love, but believe me, it gets very chaotic in the mornings with so many people, you need eyes in the back of your head.
