With its beautiful beachside setting, vibrant boardwalk scene, and funky shops, Venice Beach embodies the quintessential Southern California vibe. Once you experience this unique coastal neighborhood, you’ll understand why it’s a must-see destination in LA. The best way to get around and see it all is via our convenient shuttle bus service.
The Venice Boardwalk An Eclectic Scene
The main draw of Venice is the iconic Venice Beach Boardwalk which runs parallel to the ocean. Here you’ll find an eclectic mix of street performers, artists and vendors, bodybuilders at the outdoor gym, and colorful local characters. Spend some time strolling the people watching paradise.
Stop and take in the street performers who might be playing music, doing acrobatics, or displaying unique talents in hopes of donations. Handmade goods, artistic creations, and souvenirs can be found at the Venice Beach Art Walls where local artists have designed colorful murals.
Grab a snack as you explore from fast food spots or more unique boardwalk eats like kettle corn, fruit bowls, or peanut butter and jelly croissants. It’s an always entertaining scene along this world-famous stretch of concrete.
Our shuttle buses can pick you up right by the boardwalk, allowing you to avoid parking headaches and spend more time soaking up the sights and sounds.
Hit the Waves, Trails, and Courts
Of course you can’t miss the prime beach and ocean right there alongside the boardwalk. Go for a refreshing dip in the Pacific, play in the waves, or simply sink your toes in the sand. The bike trail connects down to Santa Monica if you want to rent a cruiser and cycle by the water.
Volleyball is huge here too – you’ll find courts set up on the sand where intense pickup games take place. Venice Beach is also known as Muscle Beach thanks to the famous outdoor gym with bodybuilding equipment and punching bags open 24/7. Get a workout in right by the shore!
Basketball is another major pastime, with popular pickup games on the Venice Beach Basketball Courts near the skatepark. It’s a favorite of LA locals given the beautiful oceanfront setting.
We offer shuttle service to Muscle Beach, the volleyball courts, basketball courts and other active attractions so you can save your energy for play.
The Venice Canals A Touch of Italy
Just a few blocks inland you’ll find the picturesque Venice Canals, a lesser-known spot many tourists miss. Wander the pathways and bridges along the serene man-made canals lined with extravagant California bungalows. It’s one of the most scenic spots in LA and feels a world away from the bustling boardwalk just down the road.
Our shuttle buses provide easy transport between the lively beach scene and the peaceful garden-like canals area.
Abbot Kinney Blvd: Trendy boutiques and eateries
Abbot Kinney Boulevard contains blocks of super trendy shops, art galleries, restaurants and cafes. Find everything from designer fashion to home decor as you meander one of the hottest retail strips in LA. Stop for artisanal coffee or nibble your way through a gourmet food tour of Venice.
Again, our shuttles make it simple to get from Abbot Kinney back to the oceanfront boardwalk and other parts of Venice. Sit back and relax as we handle the driving!
With so much diversity in this neighborhood by the sea, from people watching to culture to nature, Venice Beach offers the quintessential SoCal experience. Use our shuttle service to easily get around and uncover all this vibrant district has to offer!
