A great sightseeing walk to check off the list of things to do in Venice, CA. Due to days of drought in SoCal, low water levels and hot temperatures bring out an unpleasant stench. Try not to wander too close and too late at night to people's homes.

The only place that I feel at home.
Has anybody heard of the Norton House? Designed in 1984 by Frank Gehry, if you haven’t seen this house? Now you have another excuse to go to Venice Beach and the Venice Canals. It’s one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen personally made famous by one of the classic movie “Pumping Iron” with Arnold Schwarzenegger (1975) and “The Doors” with Val Kilmer (1991). One of the most interesting places for a site visit back in 2000, we saw musicians, body builders, skateboarders, interesting unusual performers and many tattoo shops. After the beach walk, of course the Venice Canals for a more peaceful walk. Both a must see, get there early because it's very difficult place to find parking, especially on a week-end.
