Port of Call: Venice Beach and Santa Monica

Venice Beach, right outside of Los Angeles, is by far the tackiest place on the face of the earth. I'm going to be completely honest with you. But it was the funniest experience of the entire trip. So here's the Venice Beach and Santa Monica day:
Santa Monica Pier!
Santa Monica beach!
Best Free People store ever!
The end of Route 66 is on Santa Monica Pier
Santa Monica Pier
Karate classes on Venice Beach
Venice Beach
Told ya it was a surfing type of area
Lifeguard on Duty 
Does anything get better than yoga on the beach?

There were so many of these hippie buses in Venice Beach. Let me tell you, some of these people were crazy. I think it has to do with the legal "medical" marijuana.
Yeah, it definitely could have had something to do with the medical marijuana. This guy was telling us we didn't need a prescription from a doctor because they had a "doctor." No, I'm fine thank you.
Muscle Beach!
Next on our road trip: Santa Barbara, aka my favorite place on this entire trip

May the wind be with you,

  1. ohh my goodness, that hippie bus is crazy!!!

  2. Ok I really dislike Venice-it's dirty, not very safe, etc. BUT my sister lives in Venice and there is a very nice area that makes you feel like you aren't even in Venice. The walk streets are so nice (there are actually 2 areas of walk streets). There is a small sidewalk between houses (instead of a road). It's kinda a secret world! I'm going to try to post about the walk streets sometime this fall.

    Did you see Valentine's Day? The area Ashton lived in (the canals) is actually the nicer part of Venice!
