The world famous Venice Beach Boardwalk is a great place for locals and tourists to shop, eat, people watch, walk along the beach, and be entertained for hours. It is located at Ocean Front Walk, Venice CA 90291 and is free to the public!
The Boardwalk stretches for about 2.5 miles along the Pacific Ocean and features performers, fortune-tellers, artists, musicians, and vendors. You can get fun souvenirs like paintings, photos, rocks, sculptures, bracelets and more! On the West side of the boardwalk are the small street vendors and on the East side of the boardwalk are the storefronts including t-shirt shops, sunglass stores, restaurants, tobacco shops, and bars.
Other attractions include the handball courts, paddle tennis courts, skate-park, beach volleyball courts, and bike trail. The world famous Muscle Beach where Arnold Schwarzenegger once worked out is also on the boardwalk and offers an open playground with weight lifting equipment, rope climbing, and acrobatic and gymnastics bars. At the southern end of the beach on Washington Blvd, there is the Venice Fishing Pier. The local surf spot in Venice is called the Venice Breakwater and is located between the Venice Pier and Santa Monica Pier.
The Venice Public Art Walls are located at 1800 Ocean Front Walk, west of the bike path between Windward St to the South and Market Street to the north. These historic walls were built in 1961 as part of the Venice Pavilion and were always illegally painted with graffiti style murals. Although technically illegal, it was generally tolerated by the Police and enjoyed by the community. In 1999, the Pavilion was taken down and portions of the walls were preserved. As of the year 2000, it is legal to paint the wall, but you need a permit. For more information about the rules, visit http://veniceartwalls.com/rules/.
