The Venice Boardwalk is a virtual sidewalk circus, a walk ‘n’ rolling skin show. Throughout the year but especially during the summer, there is street entertainment at every intersection along Ocean Front Walk.
Street performers include instrumental musicians, singers, jugglers, acrobats, mimes, comics, magicians, prophets, fortune tellers, and other assorted entertainers. You will see people with tricolor hairdos, painted faces, weird tattoos, and outlandish clothing.
There are lots of funky shops, too, even marijuana clinics. If you want to eat out of the ordinary or buy an unusual souvenir or a T-shirt for cheap, this is the place to go. There are courts for basketball, handball, shuffleboard and paddle tennis and a world class skate park. Afterall, “Dogtown” at the border between Santa Monica and Venice Beach is the place where the craze of skateboarding began!
Also, you shouldn’t miss Muscle Beach, a special area where fanatic bodybuilders pump iron in a public show of strength.
