View Venice, California through the lens of Venice Paparazzi. Locations targeted: The Beach, the Bike Path, Venice Art Walls, and the Venice Boardwalk between 19th Ave-Windward Ave. Camera gear used: 5D Mark III with the 24-70 mm. We kept it at 24 mm wide for the majority of the photos below.

One of the best things to do in Venice is to cruise and enjoy the the 22 mile coastline on the Bike Path. 22 miles of coastline views. The bike path that runs along the sand in Venice is 22 miles long and extends from Palos Verdes through Pacific Palisades, with a brief in-land detour. Its smooth concrete surface is great for bicycles, roller skates and skateboards alike.
Need a bike or skateboard? Jay’s Rentals has fat tire beach cruisers designed for cruising the shoreline!
Let the children run free at the Venice Play Stations. Two locations on the beach.
Spend day at the beach! This is the thing that makes Venice the most special place on earth. Sure we have great culture and people, but it is the magnificent Pacific that makes it all happen. This three-mile beach is manicured daily and the lifeguards are on duty, so grab a towel and head down to the sand. Surf, swim, body board and splash around in the Pacific Ocean. Go for a deep sand run or power walk in ankle deep water. Sunbathe & relax. Keep an eye out for dolphins. Volleyball courts also available.
Pose down at Muscle Beach Gym. Located steps from the sand on Venice Beach Boardwalk, Muscle Beach Gym is one of the treasures of Venice. Once the home gym of bodybuilders Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno, the newly outfitted facility still serves the community as the only outdoor weight room around. If you are into pumping iron or just want to see a piece of living history, then stop by Muscle Beach Gym.
If you are on the boardwalk, and craving an ice cream, or need to power up for a workout, then you have to try the coconut vegan ice-cream from Muscle Beach Juice Bar, located in the orange building across from Muscle Beach Gym. It is incredible.
Windward Plaza. Home of Jay’s Rentals, which has $15 all day rentals, The Sidewalk Market, Surfside Venice, home of a rad happy hour and live music, as well as the Venice Sign. Blue lines in the center of the photo represents the Venice Canals. Check it out.
