Venice Beach

Venice Beach is my go-to city for EPIC people watching. Take a stroll down the boardwalk for five minutes and you will have probably turned your head at least twice to get a double look at some spectacle. Whether it is a shirtless tattooed guy being pulled on a skateboard by three dogs, a publicly acclaimed “pot head” rambling on about their perspectives on life, advice, stories or anything for a little bit of cash, a very muscly man in a speedo with horns attached to his forehead or a homeless person passed out in the middle of the sidewalk in a Santa Claus outfit in the middle of the summer; you are sure to be entertained. If that doesn’t amuse you, there are a ton of shops, tattoo and piercings galore, street vendors, art, and medical marijuana doctors. If you are in the area (and by area I mean anywhere in California) go to Venice Beach, at least once. You are sure to come back with at least one story.

  1. Your description of Venice Beach is JUST how I remember it from when I stayed there during my travels a couple of years ago!

    My favourite was a homeless guy holding a sign saying ‘parents eaten by pigeon, need money for BB gun’…. On the other side he had written ‘why lie, I need a beer!’

    Also, there was an amazing sushi place there down the road from one of the new hotels.

    Lots of love,
