This is one of my absolute favorite beach spots because you get a great view of the surfers and, if you look to the south, you often get a great view of all of the planes taking off from LAX—you get steady entertainment. Being somewhat...More

This thing is kind of a dump. Smells like dead fish and urine. Trash everywhere. There are a lot of people fishing off the side, even though there are signs saying the fish is probably contaminated. Lots of homeless people hanging around. I guess worth...More

We only explored a little way up the Pier but it is a nice extension to any walk around the Venice area. A little less busy than the boardwalk and free of bikes it affords nice views back along the sand in both directions. Lots...More

Any pier in AL is nice to see the Sunset. This one I like as Venice is a eclectic place, and tons of different people walking by. I enjoy a lot

If you like to fish, this is a great place to go. The pier is made for it. No benches or stuff for visitors, though. Bring your own, if you want. Can view surfers and folks enjoying the beach - also view the never ending...More

Very nice place to walk, bike, run or just sit and relax while watching the water. Nice long and wide.

Made a visit here today for the first-time ever. Quite a few people walking it as well as fishing off the sides. Plenty of birds there as well. Great views of the surrounding beach.

Nice ocean views at sunset. Quite crowded with fishermen and smells like fish and seagull poop. Wouldn't go out of my way to visit but if in the area it's worth a few minutes at sunset.

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
