Outsider Perspective

Venice Beach is the second biggest tourist attraction in Southern California, second to Disneyland. Venice Beach is the quintessential Los Angeles beach community. It is widely know for muscle beach, the boardwalk or strand along the beach where one can spend hours and people watch, you have your surfers, bars, artists. People come to Venice to enjoy this eclectic community which happens to abound a beautiful Southern California beach. One need only walk the boardwalk to notice that Venice has homeless, the Phoenix House (drug and alcohol Rehab), beach bathrooms that close in the evening due to drug related incidents. I’m sure it’s easy to turn a blind eye to the realities of this community but it also gives a sense of realism to this otherwise frivolous and colorful beach community.
