Unique shops are the order of the day at the Venice Beach Boardwalk. From surf shops, to art shops and souvenir shops, each has their own identity and fairly reasonable prices.

On our trip out to the west coast we drove to Venice Beach. The beach itself was nice but it looked old and I felt like I was in Mexico with all the little sheds selling the same stuff. If you are headed to California...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
