    Boardwalks

    the

    Along the beach, for miles and miles, there is a fancy "road" dedicated to the lovers of any kind of wheeled diabolic machines.
    Bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, fancy cycles when you stay almost lied biking in a curious position.
    Stay away from that road if you don't want to be trampled by those crazy people.

    The beach again

    The village just ends at the beach, with no megahighways in between to cross
    For this reason, there is no mess or escessive noise.
    The atmosphere is pleasant, even because there are not organized structure to manage the beach activities themselves. Everything is free for you to access.
    The size of the place also allow to have some privacy even in a public place.

    I'm not a sea lover, or a beach lover, and consequently I'm not a beach lover. I love to spend holidays travelling, not roasting under the sun ,even if sometimes I'd better do that.
    Anyway, when I find a what I can call a Beach, I recognise it, and, boy, that was a Beach with capital "B"!
    Very nice, clean and not crowded even if it was august 20th.
    A nice place to stay, but beware the sun. The breeze may let you think it is not hurting your flesh, but it's actually doing!

    Hit the beach, and spend some...

    Hit the beach, and spend some time on the boardwalk. I actually bought a watch because of the great deal on it. With all the shops and competition, finding a good deal there isn't hard.
    When you come from the mountains like I do, both the beach and something like a boardwalk qualify as pretty interesting. I'm not sure how unique the boardwalk is, but it was worth experiencing. As far as I'm concerned, EVERYONE should be able to experience a Southern Cal. beach! Fun!

    I don't know if this is a free of charge work out area but if you want to work out, it looks like they have all the right equipment!

    Play some basketball!

    There about 4 or 5 basketball courts (I think). Even if there are no available courts perhaps you can join in a game already going on.

    Watching Street Performers

    You can spend some time doing this. Expect the performers to ask for a donation for their performance. This is how they make their living and why they come to Venice Beach to perform.

    One of the many things you can participate in on the beach! Just realize, that some of these things will cost you, so be prepared to have small bills (dollar bills) with you.
