PEOPLE & LIFESTYLE
Venice Beach is a famously eclectic community. The bright and colorful Boardwalk is one of Hollywood’s most frequently used filming locations, with countless movies using the thrilling backdrop of Muscle Beach, the Skate Dancing Plaza, bike trail, skate ramps, volleyball, handball, and paddleball courts to capture the essence of a quintessentially Californian beach scene. The Boardwalk is also home to scores of arts and crafts vendors, with street performers adding to the year-round energetic atmosphere for which Venice Beach is renown.
There is more to the neighborhood than the iconic stretch of Ocean Front Walk, however. Another celebrated local feature is the Venice Historic Canal District. This charismatic neighborhood is lined with waterways and the design is based on the charming Italian city from which Venice Beach takes its name.
Another hotspot is Abbot Kinney Boulevard, an ultra-hip street full of art galleries, restaurants, cafes, food trucks, and studios offering yoga and spinning classes. Residents and visitors alike come together on the first Friday of each month, during which the Boulevard’s stores stay open late, the streets come alive with live music performances and sections of this boulevard close off traffic allowing food trucks to assemble, providing a delightful and eclectic selection of exquisite cuisine.
