Boardwalk   •   Beach   •   Fitness


Stretching across one and a half miles of pristine sand beaches, Venice Beach Boardwalk is Southern California’s number one visitor attraction.  If uninhibited, panoramic Pacific Ocean views are too tame for our taste, you can visit the west side of the “walk” to mingle with hundreds of street vendors and performers where break dancing and broken-glass walking are the norm.  In addition to art finds of every kind, you can pick up a one-of-kind t-shirt on your way to the tattoo parlor.


Venice brings new meaning to a day at the beach.  In fact, the views available on its three-mile beach is as magnificent as the Pacific Ocean itself.  Manicured daily and monitored by lifeguards, you can rent surf, body and skim boards right on the sand, or join in a game of beach volleyball.  There’s plenty of room for soccer, football or frisbee, or if you prefer to watch, grab a towel or chair and prepare to be entertained!


Focus on health and wellness doesn’t have to take a vacation when you visit Venice Beach. Whether you crave a traditional workout at world famous Gold’s Gym or a beachside view at Muscle Beach, you’ll find your favorite way to get buff within walking distance.
