Venice LA is a popular beach community with an abundance of attractions and activities for visitors. The Venice Beach Boardwalk has been a favorite hangout spot for locals and tourists alike since 1905, when the first roller coaster was built along its sandy shores.
The city's most famous beachside landmark is the Santa Monica Pier, which features several shops, restaurants and amusement park rides along its 1,000-foot long boardwalk. It's also known for having one of the few remaining working carousels from this era in America.
If you're looking to get some fresh air while visiting Venice LA, you'll want to check out Abbot Kinney Boulevard—a walkable street lined with unique boutique shops that are open late into the evening during summer months (when they offer discounts on merchandise). Just north of Venice Beach sits Marina Del Rey which has undergone extensive redevelopment over time thanks to its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
The marina is home to thousands of boats and yachts, as well as a popular beachside community. It's also known for being home to several celebrities—who own homes along its shoreline. If you're looking for things to do in Venice Beach LA, be sure to visit the famous Muscle Beach where bodybuilders come from all over the world to train. You'll also want to check out the skate park located near Washington Boulevard and Rose Avenue which features an indoor facility that stays open year-round.
