Venice Beach is one of the most popular places to visit in L.A., and for a very good reason. I know I’ve talked about Venice Beach a little bit in a previous post (you can read it here!), but I’ve been meaning to blog about this area of SoCal for a while now. Venice Beach, hands down, was one of the coolest places I’ve ever been. My boyfriend and I had so much fun here. We came to Venice Beach our last day in California (March 8th, 2017) because it was the warmest day of our trip, and I’m so glad we waited, it was really like we saved the best for last.
When we first got to Venice, we kind of just starting walking up the boardwalk, stopping in shops along the way. Everyone was extremely nice, which I found somewhat surprising. Everything was so unique, eclectic, and artsy. All of the pops of color along the boardwalk radiated good vibes. Something I had immediately noticed while walking along the boardwalk was the smell of “ganja” in the air, and nobody really caring. That was something suuuuper surprising coming from Florida, although I expected it after my trip to San Francisco a few years prior.
