VENICE BEACH-THE LAND OF THE WEIRDOS!!!
So this past weekend, I went to the famous Venice Beach for the first time!!! I know it's pretty embarrassing at the fact that I've been living in Los Angeles all my life, and this is the first time I've been here...but now I can say that I have!
Venice Beach is such a culture shock if you haven't been there. First thing you can sniff out if the weed that fills the air. There are so many little shops selling an array of things such as clothes, jewelry, shoes, and sunglasses. There are also many KUSH DOCTORS [medical marijuana] all over the place.
Some sights I came across was a man who gathered a slew of people around him and hyped up the crowd so much when he was about to dance, but didn't end up dancing. He did this for a good 5 minutes, giving the crowd a taste of a few seconds worth of stuff, but never continuing.
There was a man dressed in a white suit and hat saying that he was a pimp in need of weed. With him was a drugged out lady with purple undies riding up her butt crack for everyone to see. There was also a man playing electric guitar on rollerblades!
At Venice, is the infamous basketball courts, skate park, and Muscle Beach where bodybuilders work out for everyone to see. There are also graffiti walls in the sand where it is lawfully ok to graffiti on.
There are cute food places on the strip, and I managed to come across a CORN CART where fresh corn on the cob is served with mayo, butter, and parmesan cheese! It sounds like a heart attack, but it is BOMB!!!
Venice Beach is a must see destination because it definitely is a culture shock. If you wanted to imagine the hippie days, come by and you will definitely get a taste of it. There are many places to eat and shop, but not many to use the bathroom, so try to go before hand! If you can't help it, there are always the public beach bathrooms which are disgusting, but hey if you gotta go, then you gotta go. If you're ever in town, you should definitely check out VENICE BEACH!!!
