Spent a day wandering up and down Abbot Kinney with my teenager. The sales people in every store were attentive and friendly. Lots of great shops and funky restaurants. Velvet, Sweaty Betty, Margaret O'Leary just to name a few great shops. Highly recommend!

This was a very cool area with quaint shops and great food. All places had their own character, and it was very clean.

It doesn’t get any hipper than Abbot Kinney on A weekend afternoon The trendiest LA stores and outfits found here. This means great window (or actual) shopping and people watching. The weather is usually perfect and the coffee shops and eateries memorable.

Great street filled with boutiques and cool restaurants and cafes. Not cheap, it's the posh part of Venice with some overpriced restaurants and some good ones. Very artsy, lot of graffitis on side streets.

souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting

Sally G, AK is a long street so I'd break it up into two long strolls, unless you have good stamina. The shops themselves are eclectic, mostly clothing (including vintage) but also things like vinyl albums, Warby Parker... More
