One of the loveliest places to live in California is Venice, a neighborhood in Los Angeles. Venice is incredibly walkable. Groceries on Lincoln, dinner and drinks on Rose or Abbot Kinney, the beach, the canals, the boardwalk, the pier, the skate park, the boutiques, the outdoor vendors — everything is within 30 brisk minutes of everything else.
Finding a home away from home makes your vacation in Venice extra special, and it takes much more than just a room with a view. There are plenty of Venice beach homes for sale and a replete of hotels that offer a variety of accommodations to suit every preference, from elegant boutique properties for pampering and relaxation to quirky hot spots to heat up the night.
The Venice Beach Boardwalk stretches over two miles and hosts hundreds of street vendors and performers along with numerous privately owned restaurants and food venues. The Venice Beach Recreation Center offers various activities including but not limited to basketball, paddle tennis and handball tournaments, body building at the world famous Muscle Beach Venice gym, and other special events.
Venice Beach also offers a fishing pier, a world renowned skate plaza, bike path, two children’s play areas and provides a variety of services for the culturally diverse population that visits throughout the year. Film productions are also very popular at Venice Beach and occur year round. All of the sports courts, skate plaza, pier and other amenities are open to the general public on a daily basis.
If you are in Los Angeles for a vacation, be sure to also visit Santa Monica Beach, which averages more than 300 days of sunshine a year and offers some of the best sunsets on the West Coast. If you love the sunshine and the beach and want to consider Santa Monica your second home, you may want to google condos for sale Santa Monica to help you find your dream home in this walkable and bike-friendly town, making it super easy for you to get around and experience the haven of shops, restaurants, attractions like the Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade, and more.
Venice and Santa Monica are both different sections of the same, long stretch of beach. They are next to each other so you can easily stay in one and visit the other when you are there for a vacation. It is very easy to rent bikes and pedal on the bike path which runs along the beach from Santa Monica to Venice and (after an inland detour around Marina Del Rey) to the south bay beaches beyond.
