Discover Venice Beach Attractions, Shopping and Nightlife

Known as the "Venice of America," this vibrant bohemian enclave has been drawing artists and free-spirited creative folks since 1905. Stroll along the boardwalk to find an eclectic mix of street performers, funky shops, restaurants, and the famous Muscle Beach outdoor gym. Throw a strike at the bowling alley, check out comedy clubs and live theater, discover hot dining spots on Abbot Kinney Boulevard or go clubbing late-night. Rent a bike and go exploring along the canals, visit the colorful Venice Art Walls or sit on the beach and soak up the sunshine. If you're looking for a unique California destination filled with plenty of local color, Venice Beach never disappoints.
