Day 3: Los Angeles

The most interesting and popular sight in Venice Beach is the beach, but it’s not the surf and sand that take center stage here. It’s the lively sidewalk scene. Venice Beach is a place where you’ll find artists, palm readers and bikini-clad roller skaters mixing with chanting, saffron-clad Hare Krishnas and wriggling belly dancers. Points of Interest include; • Venice Boardwalk – It’s really more of a sidewalk than a “board” walk, but a walk down it is the best way to explore the waterfront scene. You’ll pass street performers, skaters, artists, gawkers and vendors selling all kinds of items from incense to sarongs. • Muscle Beach: This is the place where Arnold Schwarzenegger and hosts of other body-builders have “bulked up” in the outdoor weight room. If you’d like to have your day in the sun, you can buy a day pass at the office. • Venice Canals: A few blocks remain out of some 16 miles of manmade waterways that once graced Venice-of-America, founded in 1905 by local developer Abbot Kinney. You can walk along them in the area bordered by Washington, South Venice Blvd., Pacific Ave. and Ocean Ave.
