    Fun to visit once. Couple days isn't too long since there is lot of "stuff" in walking distance. Cleaned up so it's all safe.

    Despite its fame it didn't leave me a great impression. There is not so much to do or see. If you have limited time head to Santa Monica instead.

    Rent some bikes and join your friends for a ride along the coast. Stop by muscle beach and the skateboarding park to scope out some mad skilled peeps.

    The beach and boardwalk hog might hog the headlines, but the canals of Venice are equally unmissable. Sadly, there are no gondoliers but it’s still a romantic place to explore.

    Barbie and I loved to rent bikes and ride along the Venice Beach boardwalk. We raced all the time, but of course, I would always let her win.

    Sunday Drum Circle starting sometime around 4-5pm.. By sunset there are hundreds of people playing drums and dancing. If you're lucky the fire dancers and hoola hoops will be out!!
