Creative and beautiful shops around, I spent half a day walking around. Such a cool place to see and explore before or after the beach!

Fell in love with the street. It has everything you can name it on just one street. Many options to eat. My favorite thing to do during Sundays. Worth a visit if you are in mood to look around and grab a bite. I never...More

Ok area, totally changed over the past 20 + years. Not for the average joe and definitely not an attraction. On the pricey side. the beach is so close I think that would be a better choice.

An eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, a walk and a pop in to see local products is a good idea. I bought some candles. Most stores are one off ones and have interesting designs. Some lovely coffee shops. Worth a visit.

Used to be funky, now it is hip. Always interesting to watch neighborhoods transition and change. Way back in time it was hippie haven with fascinating parties. Now it is trending toward hipsters. It has always been a fun place to hang. Only the prices...More

Great spot for window shopping, some good bars, craft beer and cosy places to eat. You don't end up spending too much time here I guess but it's definitely worth popping by.

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

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
