32 photos that will make you want to visit Venice Beach LA

Venice is an exciting beach town in the west of Los Angeles, labelled as “a cultural hub known for its eccentricities”. The area has a strong bohemian spirit and is full of free-spirited locals and curious tourists who want to experience its buzzing boardwalk, quirky shops and all-around intoxicating vibe.

Venice is a great place to spend a chilled-out day in Los Angeles. I hope these photos I shot on my recent visit convince you to give it a chance…
