Venice is at once a bohemian neighbourhood and a popular Los Angeles seaside resort. It is famous for its colourful Ocean Front Walk, its long beach of fine sand, which lends itself to lots of activities, and its three miles of canals demarcating a picturesque residential area. The small, flower-decked lanes that run alongside these still waters offer the opportunity for a charming walk away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront, as you take in its architectural whimsies.
California, the home of Beach Culture
With its origins in Hawaï, surfing developed in California nearly a century ago due to the efforts of a man named Duke. Ever since this sport has been an integral part of West Coast American culture associated with sun, girls in bikinis and nice cars. In 2011 this legendary beach culture is still truly alive and kicking.Discover
