We enjoyed the shops and restaurants along Abbott Kinney but we never actually bought anything or ate anything but an ice cream. It's a very hipster area and worth seeing but it is very expensive.

If you're on Abbott Kinney, make sure you stop at Blue Star donuts!! It's the only place I've actually gone into.

Great shopping from Alternative to Ruti to Rag&Bone. Great coffee shops, restaurants and jewelry stores. Love the leather store, Will. Great place to look for a gift.

Cute street with adorable shops, boutique clothing stores and eateries. Not in the BEST area which gives it 4 Stars. We took an electric scooter here and it was a little sketchy. Uber and it’s a bit safer.

This is a fun part of the greater Los Angeles area to visit. Huge selection of eclectic shops and places to eat from the cheapest eats to the highest gourmet. Great stores, beautiful people and something for everyone and every budget. Huge downside for me,...More

We enjoyed walking this trendy street popping into the mostly independent shops. It’s a nice break from the beach with lots of places to eat and drink

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

Sally G, AK is a long street so I'd break it up into two long strolls, unless you have good stamina. The shops themselves are eclectic, mostly clothing (including vintage) but also things like vinyl albums, Warby Parker... More
