Made the trek to Venice Beach from New York a couple years ago...it's a place I wanted to visit for years and I wasn't disappointed!! Loved the vibe and the Southern California sunshine!! Met a bunch of great chill folks on the beach...cannot wait to return someday soon I hope!!

Great w friends but I took my dog and there were a lot of unfriendly dogs on the path that live in the neighborhood. Would never bring my dog back but may do a walk with friends. 3 stars bc i felt unsafe due to the nature of the dogs wanting to attack mine. But yes it is cool plce with interesting houses. Not something I would go to rountinely.

Too windy and cool at Venice Beach boardwalk today. This was a great sheltered walk a few blocks in from the beach along the canals to see some great architecture.

I love venice beach. Recently walked as much of it as I could with my pup, but would have explored more had I prepared more and brought more water.


My favorite stop is the venice art walls.


Be careful to stay on the path designated for walkers and not bikers or people on wheels.

Great with kids 5 and under!

Great place to watch people, lots of activities from surfing, volleyball, bike riding, roller-skating/blading, weightlifting, basketball, etc.

This is made for driving, not walking/biking which most people do in Venice. Either way it was a great guide and showed me where the canals were.

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.

A beautiful stroll with your significant other. Lots of cute ducks and incredible house architecture. A good walk for the daytime.
