The Venice Beach Boardwalk

Why locals recommend it
There are lots of artists, writers, and creative people who live in Venice, and I think that's what makes it special. It’s also a fantastic place to walk on the beach, bike, or skateboard to clear your head before a writing session. As a writer, I think you need to connect with your environment, and there’s nothing like an ocean breeze to inspire. Once you've gained inspiration from Venice’s natural beauty, hop inside Intelligentsia on Abbot Kinney to grab a coffee and start writing, or get your sugar fix from Salt and Straw or Blue Star donuts.
Tips from locals
Lots of crazy stuff here, but I recommend you rent bikes (or a segway) and roll along the bike path. It's an experience.
Lots of Crazies here. But Love Crazy in LA. AKA muscle each. There are lots of streets show, local eats, dispensaries, hippy wibe, and the beach. Fantastic place to walk on the beach, bike, or skateboard.
