Venice Beach from the Santa Monica Pier
Lots of fun, weird and entertaining people in Venice Beach. The boardwalk extends for a couple miles and the beach is incredible. Muscle Beach, Skate Dancing plaza and the handball and tennis courts make this a place for everyone.
Venice beach was pretty cool. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the LA area. But, it is crowded, and it seems dangerous in some places. My friend was approached by some guy that threatened him unless my friend gave him a beer. There also seemed to be a lot of bums in the area. There was also a lot of eccentric folks doing everything from dancing, working out and street performing. There are lots of shops that are fun to browse and cool restaurants to grab a bite at.
