The Venice Beach Experience • A Los Angeles Story

Description

Experience a day at Venice Beach, Los Angeles and enjoy the diversity this vibrant place in California has to offer. Waking up in a mixture of excitement and rush to capture the spirit of Venice Beach kick started my day. First I headed to Abbot Kinney Blvd, the main shopping and restaurant street in that district of L.A.. After grabbing a spinach-sundried-tomato pizza at Abbots Pizza I headed to the beach. At the Ocean Front Walk is really where the diversity of this place comes to life. You have tourists shopping silly souvenir shirts, locals going for a run to burn calories, and people just enjoying the sun on the beach. Next I headed to the Venice Beach Recreation Center, a massive public place to do all kind of sports. The pumping heart of this spot is Muscle Beach where pumped up humans work out on display to the joy and amusement of visitors from around the world. It felt a bit like in a gladiator training camp. With those impressions and the sun slowly setting we head to the Venice Beach Skate Park. Seriously, this was one of my favourite parts, the guys and girls daring to roll in the bowls with their skateboards and showing off their fantastic skills to jump and occasionally to fall without breaking any bone. The day at the skate park ended abruptly when the police roamed the place right after sunset. Full of the visuals taken in during the day I walked the Ocean Front Walk further and the scenery of Venice Beach Changes once the sun set behind the mountains. The shops close, the little booths artists set up are wrapped up and homeless who blend in in the masses during the day prepare for the night on the beach.
