We just got back from a warm sunny weekend in Venice Beach, CA. We were there to help a friend celebrate a milestone birthday. It was the perfect opportunity for friends to gather from around the country and enjoy some of what SoCal has to offer. Being a native Californian, it had been awhile since I visited my home state. I was not sure what to expect and I was pleasantly delighted the minute we arrived at this beach town.
We had so much fun! Venice, or as my skater husband likes to call it “Dogtown”, was charming, eccentric, laid back and exciting all at the same time. From its crazy boardwalk, friendly natives, quaint canals and infamous shopping street, Abbot Kinney, it was the perfect mix of beach town and city life. So, if you ever happen to be in LA, go visit Venice Beach and enjoy the sun!
