NileGuide Expert tip:

Visitors and locals alike flock to Venice Beach through the year. It can get cold in the winter, so dress accordingly. Even though crime levels have dropped, the area has been known to be a popular destination for pickpockets and other criminals at night.


Nothing conjures up the image of Southern California living as vividly as life in Venice Beach. Originally modeled with canals similar to those of its Italian namesake, Venice Beach has become one of Los Angeles' biggest and freest popular attractions. The bike path made famous in the opening sequence of "Three's Company," is alive with street performers of all variety from palm readers to jugglers and fire dancers. Muscle Beach, an area with public weights and gear, made Arnold Schwarzenegger a celebrity. The bike and pedestrian paths stretch throughout Venice from Santa Monica in the north to Manhattan Beach in the south. Parking can be a problem, so paid lots are highly recommended.
