Venice Beach is well-known for its lively 3-mile boardwalk that stretches along the length of the beach. It’s full of unique shops, street performers and tons of courts for outdoor sports. A recent review on TripAdvisor said: “Amazingly crazy cool. A full of life beach. You can find everything for everybody: gifts, souvenir, massage, sunglasses, entertainment, skateboarders, and more.”
