From the hiking trails in the mountain to the bustling downtown streets to ocean front paths, there are plenty of things to do in Los Angeles. With so many options, it won’t be difficult to find large group activities in Los Angeles. One option is to head to the venice beach and boardwalk.
If you want to experience Venice, than a trip to the boardwalk is a must. Walk down the 2 mile or so stretch of boardwalk that is located right along the Pacific Ocean. While you walk down the oceanfront boardwalk, it’s a great opportunity for people watching, shopping and entertainment from street performers. All along the boardwalk you’ll find a wide variety of vendors selling local and original pieces of art, jewelry, knick-knacks and more. You’ll also find discount shirts, sunglasses, and other accessories that make great souvenirs! Also at the Venice Boardwalk is the original Muscle Beach. Feel free to check out the local bodybuilders as they flex and squat their way to physical perfection.
When you’re done people watching and you want to instead take in the natural beauty of venice, than head to the Venice Canals. Here, you might think you’ve stumbled upon a European wonderland, but don’t worry, you’ll still be here in sunny Southern California. Founded in 1905 by local millionaire Abbot Kinney, the original idea was to have the venice canals used as a beach resort town. Today, the area is surrounded by houses but the area is welcomed to the public. If you’re at the Venice Beach Boardwalk, it’s only about a ten minutes walk to get over to the Venice Canals. Enjoy a romantic walk along the bridges and canals of the area - you won’t regret it. If you walk at a leisurely pace, you can do the whole thing in about 45 minutes to an hour. During your walk, be sure to take in the beautiful architecture of the multimillion dollar homes that are along the canals.
