What To See at Venice Beach

Looking West from the Venice Blvd parking lot. That’s the Venice Breakwater in the distance, where the locals surf. Lifeguard tower 19.

And finally, the Venice Skate Park. You’re seeing the backs of people watching the skateboarders do their thing. On this side of the bike path is a place to dance! Sometimes it’s the hoola hoopers and sometimes it’s the roller bladers.

This is actually the trickiest part of the bike path to navigate. People are crossing over to the skate park and they’re not realizing they’re crossing a bike path. Horn recommended.

All of this has happened  in  the space between the parking lot at Venice Blvd. North and where Windward meets the beach.
