Venice Beach Los Angeles a popular tourist destination!
A trip to famous Venice Beach is at the top of the list for many Los Angeles visitors. Incidentally, the name was inspired by the many canals that lead to the beach. These were once built to make the area habitable. But the relative tranquility of the Venice Canal does not interest most tourists. They want to head straight to the beach, where life pulsates and you can stroll along the Venice Boardwalk.
The beach extends to a length of about five kilometers and the boardwalk is very long. One shop joins the other there. From small art, costume jewelery to t-shirts everything is offered. The main thing is it failed as possible.
At Venice Beach Los Angeles you meet the most bizarre people!
on. Musicians, joggers, beautiful skaters in skimpy bikinis and street performers with breathtaking shows that earn their livelihood. Even musicians who offer their CDs and Althippies who want to sell something can be found here. My daughter-in-law calls it, how many Americans, freak show.
Weights are under blue sky!
The sky above Venice Beach is deep blue and pumped up muscle men lift their weights at the well-known Muscle Beach. There, where Arnold Schwarzenegger already trained, curious tourists gather. The bodybuilders can not be bothered by this and pay little attention to the curious crowd.
The smell from the food stalls blends with the unmistakable scent of marijuana that can be freely bought here and almost every street corner in Greater Los Angeles.
Buildings with colorful facades line the promenade, and in front of them doze off on the lawns or in the sand those who have already consumed their drugs or too much alcohol.
Skateboarders belong to Venice Beach like the muscle men!
A group of onlookers gather between the boardwalk and the beach at Venice Beach Skate Park to watch skateboarders doing their tricks. Young or old, boys and girls everyone is skating here and many are really talented too. The audience claps applause when especially small children show their feats and shoot memorial photos.
When the sun goes down at Venice Beach Los Angeles!
At dawn, Venice Beach Los Angeles is home to almost only locals, and there's nothing more to feel the day's gaiety and lightheartedness. Numerous homeless people and drug junkies replace the tourists in the evening and look for a place to stay overnight.
After sunset you should not stop here, that is not completely safe!
