Tucked away along the coast of Los Angeles, is the famous Venice Beach. 1.5 miles of beach and promenade that stretches across the pacific ocean. Here you can find various performers, vendors and artists.
Personally, I was dying to visit Venice Beach has I have seen it in dozens of movies and shows and wanted to see what the hype was all about.
Having been to many beaches around the world, the appeal about Venice beach is the soft warm sand unike the rocky beaches of Europe.
Muscle beach where the famous Arnold Schwarzenegger was discovered.
Is Venice beach the best beach I have been to? Definitely not, however it is exactly how you would see it in the movies and is quirky and definitely worth the visit.
Next stop, a few miles down the coast to the Santa Monica Pier.
