    The Venice Fishing Pier dashes straight out into the ocean, cutting its way between brilliant blue waves—surfers on one side, the sandy stretches of Malibu and Santa Monica up the other.

    This is the same pier as in the movie Falling Down with Michael Douglass. The old one was damaged and rebuilt. This is the re-incarnation. It's much cleaner & much more of an open courtyard now.

    The sunset is a must see, great place to walk or ride a bike, crowded for the most part, but you can even fish there

    Great views. That said, beware of the bird gang at the end of the end of the pier—the seagulls are very intimidating.

    The only element of interest here is the breathtaking vista at the end of the pier. It is fisherman otherwise.

    Shrimp jicarita is the absolute best. Traditional mojitos are the best too. HH is 4-7

    Boogie Up the Boardwalk 2010 started at the Venice Pier - look out for us next year on National Dance Day (July 31) and join our dance parade: starting at Venice Pier and ending at Santa Monica Pier!

    Fun to see surfers catch waves and people watch. It is surprisingly clean and safe.

    Runners . . . Use the bike path. Pedestrians/Marijuana solicitors clog the other path. About 3+ miles between Venice and Santa Monica Piers.

    Venice, the Pier, the Strand, and the parkway all seem dirty to me. It's unfortunate. They need to clean it up.

    There were more dogs and people did not walk their bikes. Beside that this is a nice pier with safe guard service.

    We felt harassed by the homeless and the guys selling cds. It made for a very unpleasant visit to Venice.
