Tips from locals
Rent a bike, and bike till Venice Beach. But don’t leave your bike unattended! Great people watching and beautiful beach. Also fun to walk along 3rd Street Promenade. Or Main Street for a more local scene.
3rd Street Promenade is a must. It is a walk street offering movie theaters, restaurants , out door mall, fishing pier and amusement park B.
Head to the Pier with the kids, and then shopping at the Promenade on 3rd Street.
Chill beach vibe with the shopping area, 3rd street promenade and the Santa Monica Pier next to each other.
Just a short drive down PCH, restaurants, shopping, the famous Pier and a number of cultural activities.
