Fodor's Expert Review Venice Beach Boardwalk

Venice Promenade Fodor's Choice
Boardwalk, Venice Beach, Venice, Santa Monica, Venice, and Malibu, Los Angeles, California, USA.

The surf and sand of Venice are fine, but the main attraction here is the boardwalk scene, which is a cosmos all its own. Go on weekend afternoons for the best people-watching experience. You can also swim, fish, surf, and skateboard, or play racquetball, handball, shuffleboard, and basketball (the boardwalk is the site of hotly contested pickup games). Or you can rent a bike or in-line skates and hit the Strand bike path, then pull up a seat at a sidewalk café and watch the action unfold.
