    Parking for the day is only $5 before 8 am! The Venice Whaler is the best place to catch the sunset and relax with a beer or cocktail

    Venice Beach is one of my favorite spots in Southern California, lots of energy, shops, excellent beach food, interesting people, and a variety of movies and shows filmed here.

    An incredibly LA and SoCal spot. Full of characters, crazies, and quirks to fall in love or run away from.
