Baja Cantina has been there for years and is a fabulous place to stop for good traditional Mexican dishes and awesome Margaritas and a long list of beer. A day experiencing Venice Beach has to include Baja Cantina. Talk about Dinner and a Floor Show!...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
