    Frankly a bit disappointing. Not Frankie and Annette's Venice anymore.

    Very California carefree, bohemian beach scene. Fun to walk around & hang on the beach on the sunny day.

    Venice beach is timeless. The boardwalk has, and always has been, a melting pot for artists, and the eccentric, as well as modern trends. That way both types of people can enjoy themselves.

    It's so fun to walk down Venice Beach and just look at people. It's so beautiful walking around and sit in the sand looking at the sunset.

    A little dumpy and can get crowded but you definitely get a fun, nostalgic vibe. Rent a bike and go to Santa Monica

    a fun, grungy beach that represents a last vestige of sleazy American amusement. A lot of fun culture here, a constant guitar player on roller skates, boarding culture and drum circles every Sunday

    My personal favourite spot in LA. Hopefully the rumours of gentrification in the near future are unfounded. It would ruin this place.

    Love this place. You can go along the beach with a bike, watch beautiful sun set, eat nice corn on the weekends. Parking at the beach is $6.
