Opinion: Reasons Why We Love Venice Beach

There are a lot of cool places in the world, but Venice Beach is one of the most unique. You’ll find artists, bodybuilders, skaters, and small businesses all situated against one of the most beautiful beaches in the continental USA. Our community focus and local business vibe creates a strong sense of connectedness that you can’t find anywhere else. Here are some of the reasons why we love it here so much.

Farmers Markets

Want fresh produce each week? Come on out for our farmers markets. We feature locally grown food, honey, fresh flowers and so much more. The Venice Beach farmers market is an excellent place to buy fresh food grown right here in California. You’ll meet the amazing people who grow your food and who love to share it with our community.

Perfect For Weddings

Want a simple elopement on the beach? Venice Beach is perfect for it. With the sandy shore and beautiful waters, you can easily say “I do” along the coast. While there are plenty of wedding venues in Los Angeles, the cost and the traffic to get there can be overwhelming.  Here we have countless beautiful spots that make it easy to get hitched. Check with city ordinances to see what’s allowed and what’s not.

Small Businesses

We love the small businesses in our community. There are shops that sell beach gear, places that serve up delicious food, and even interesting and unique boutiques. The small business vibe is one of the big reasons we love Venice Beach.

Community Focused

We care about our community. We love to help raise awareness about issues that are important to the people in our community. Recently, one of the lifeguard towers was painted to help raise awareness about Autism and special needs locally. It was painted as a temporary art installation. Thousands of people walk by it daily and can see how important it is to learn more about the people around us with special needs.

The Beach

With 75 miles of coastline, we love the beach here. Whether you like to lay out and get tan, play a game of beach volleyball or go play in the water, the beach here is known all over the country for its beauty and fun. You can ride bikes on the sidewalks, walk your dog, take photos, and simply enjoy the sand and sun. Bring your family and have a sandcastle building contest.

Surfing

For those who love a little more excitement on the beach, you’re in luck. Surfing is a favorite pastime for many Californians. And Venice Beach is a favorite location to make it happen. The strong waves and lifeguards mean you can have fun in the water, but be safe if something happens and you need help. Our lifeguards are specially trained in the waves.

Art

The artsy vibe in Venice Beach is unlike any other place. There are street artists, poets, and creatives all around you. If you love eclectic places, you’ll love it here. We love the unique art and the people who create it. There are many art galleries and spots where you’ll find creative people in Venice Beach.

The Boardwalk

Our boardwalk is special. If you love to watch people, or find out what’s happening, start at the boardwalk. You’ll find fortune tellers, artists, and street performers alongside small shops and more. The boardwalk is more than two miles long and it’s known throughout the world. We love it because there is always something interesting and new to discover.

The Skate Plaza

Want to surf on land? We have the best skate park around. Professional and amateur skateboarders love the concrete surfaces to practice and connect with others. The skate park is right on the beach, so not only can you have fun, there’s a beautiful view to go with it. It was built in the 2000’s and remains an iconic spot in our area.

We Have the Best Gym

Did you know we have a famous gym here? Muscle Beach Venice Gym is famous. It’s outdoors, and has been around since 1963. Bodybuilders come from all over to train and compete here. You can watch at any time of day. The gym is situated just steps from the beach.
