Los Angeles, California audio tour: Eclectic Venice

About the Tour

Stroll through a variety of Venice locales. The walk starts with a wander along Venice's Grand Canal with its hip architecture and tranquil landscape. Then you move onto the wild Venice Beach, where you will see its world famous Muscle Beach and the cement canyons of the Skate Park. As the walk winds through streets to the Windward Circle, you can see art everywhere as you experience the bohemian spirit of Venice.

This walk starts at the corner of Strongs Drive and Washington Boulevard, at the start of the path along the canal next to a small parking lot. The start point is near a bus stop for the Starline and Culver City 1 buses on Washington Boulevard. Look for a white wooden fence on the corner of Washington and Strongs.

Best time of day

I recommend doing the tour early in the day, before the sun is too hot. Otherwise, it's really nice to be at the beach at sunset.


Venice Beach is an eclectic community which attracts lots of awesome people - and some not so nice people. Be aware of your surroundings. You will be walking on the beach. Be aware of bikes on bike paths. Wear sunscreen.


It was a good tour. I liked it
