We visited Pier when we went to Venice beach. There were lots of street formers along the Boardwalk. We explored only a little and did not appear very good to me. The area was not so clean and price appeared exorbitantly high. Instead we came...More

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

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

The Venice Pier is a spot to visit while checking out the querky area along the Venice boardwalk. You will see lots of interesting people and enjoy the beautiful weather along Venice beach.

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
