Venice Beach is weird. Everyone wants to sell you pot. It's more beautiful than I ever imagined and it's full of maniacs. I loved it. We stayed one night en route to New Zealand. Next time I hope to explore Los Angeles properly, check out downtown and go celebrity spotting. If you do visit Venice Beach I recommend the Venice Ale House for delicious beers and lunch or dinner. I had a mean raw vegan salad and the other half rated his steak excellent. Just look out for the drunk redheaded American of Irish decent wearing a dodgy leather jacket. He'll insult Jews, the Welsh and anyone who is listening. All while you try and eat your lunch in the sunshine on the boardwalk.
