Venice Beach
Natural Feature in Venice

Why I go  There’s so much to do in Venice, it’s the kind of place where you’ll hop off your bike a lot. And it is really best visited by bike. I like to start by grabbing Gjelina’s takeout pizza, riding along Abbott Kinney and into the neighborhoods. Then I hop into beach path to people watch and see skaters shred the bowl.
Insider tip  Wind down your biking day in Venice back at the beach. On weekend afternoon and evenings, you’ll hear drumming. Follow the sound, and at the end of Brooks Avenue, you’ll see dozens of strangers beating on drums, pots, pans, whatever—and dancing on the beach. It’s super communal, and anyone can join in.
