One of the best things to do in Los Angeles is walking from Venice to Santa Monica along the beach, on the famous Venice Beach Boardwalk. We parked our car in Venice and walked along all the fun and exciting shops, restaurants and also a few homeless people, to Santa Monica. There are lots of performers, mimes, musicians, jugglers and everything in between at Venice Beach Boardwalk. The shops on the eastside are selling lots of funny t-shirts, surf stuff or skate boards. There are also lots of tattoo shops, medical marijuana shops or piercing shops.

The Venice beach boardwalk is incredibly famous in Los Angeles and I understood why. It is a very exciting place to visit, with lots to see and lots of people to watch. They all dress uniquely, behave different and create a show.

Another exciting thing you will notice on the Venice Beach Boardwalk are the wall paintings on the buildings. Every house or apartment building has a unique painting. Don’t miss them!

Wander further to Santa Monica

After the Venice Beach Boardwalk the beach will lead you to famous and busy Santa Monica with the more famous Santa Monica pier.

The attractions on the Santa Monica Pier. This famous pier appeared in a lot of movies like Forrest Gump in 1994 and in the famous series called Baywatch and Private Practice.

Did you know that this pier is actually two adjoining piers? It is incredible what is on this pier; attractions, restaurants, shops, car parks and lots of people. Very impressive and a must do in Los Angeles.

I haven’t been in the attractions but I think it looks great and extraordinary. You can also go shopping in Santa Monica by the way. There is a great shopping centre with all the shops you need :-)

Until next time, Claudia
