We can all admit that Los Angeles has its fair share of things to do. From Griffith Park to Santa Monica Beach & Pier, to Hollywood, the most populous city in California has got a lot to do. With that in mind, what is one to do should they find themselves desiring to play out the lifestyle of the most famous of California landscapes? That is to say, what if you just want to kick your shoes off and hit the beach? I mean, this is California, for crying out loud!
Enter Venice Beach. In many ways the heart of the L.A. beach area, this famous beach has numerous notable qualities that make it a great beach to visit. It’s here that the bodybuilders of yesteryear pumped iron in the open-aired Muscle Beach gym and flaunted their watermelon biceps to the world (a previous California governor being one of them). Nowadays, this beach still rests by the funky and colorful Venice Beach neighborhood, and boasts great people-watching, artist stalls, and yes, miles of wonderful golden sand.
It’s here you’re likely to see Liam Neeson filming a commercial or pass by jugglers walking with flaming torches in their hands. It’s also here where you can find unique shops, shoot basketballs, or see skateboarders skate the same parks in which their heroes helped make modern skateboarding what it is today.
If you’re looking for a unique activity for your day at Venice Beach, the Electric Bicycle Tour of Santa Monica and Venice Beach is an alternative way to tour the area.
After all this, what else is there to do? Well, there’s always the sunset, but turn around: all of Los Angeles is at your fingertips!
