The beach is beautiful but I just don't like that there are too much homeless people drinking, fighting or having a physco moment lol.

This is the second point we choose to visit after Santa Monica beach in the L.A. coast. It was really nice. There are plenty of people and shops all over, people practising sports, skating in an awesome skate park, cycling... Near from here you have the attraction that name the area, the little Venice imitation that finally wasn't that great... But deserves a visit.

Amazing, once you've gone you can't think about going away. The best place for relaxing not too far from the crowded LA

Venice Beach is beautiful! It has a lot of character and lots of characters here! Street vendors are awesome, there are street performers left and right and amazing street art. I really enjoyed walking through here, it really is vibrant and it has alot going on.

This place is more like a tourist trap than an actual beach you would go to for lounging and relaxing. There's always too many people on the boardwalk. Lots of vendors selling interesting but probably useless things. There are also performers every so often down the stretch of the boardwalk. It's a fun place to people-watch. There's a skate park which I imagine is a great place to skate as it's right on the beach. The beach itself always looks dirty. Parking is challenging unless you want to pay big bucks for it or walk a couple blocks.

You either love it or you hate it for what it is, and I LOVE Venice Beach. Coming from Miami, it is definitely the culture shock I think anyone visiting L.A. should experience. I've been multiple times and have always enjoyed the visit. Best time is definitely in the afternoon, which inconveniently is also the worst time to find parking. Keep at it though. Once you do, a short walk over to the main stretch and you can walk and take in the various street performers, the different vendors, and many of the shops that line up the stretch. Sure, there are tons of bums, and many of the performers may harass you for money if you take in their act without donating, but this part of Venice is definitely just walking along and taking in the different types of people. You'll also find Muscle Beach, pick-up basketball games, and skaters. There are actually even some good shops. As for the beach, its wonderful and I definitely suggest taking a dip and setting up camp near the water.
