The Best of Venice Beach

Local Attractions & Things To Do

Venice Beach has it all - from sandy beaches and Italy-inspired canals to trendy Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Lucky for you, the Inn at Venice Beach places you within easy walking distance to all of the action. Whether you are in town for a beach vacay or a local staycation, Venice Beach offers an unforgettable experience for all of our hotel guests.

Walk the (Board)Walk

Located just 2 short blocks from our hotel, explore this 2.5-mile spectacle known as the Venice Beach Boardwalk or Ocean Front Walk. Filled with skaters, surfers, artists, musicians, fortune tellers, and other assorted street entertainers, the Venice Beach Boardwalk is a must-see. Officially the second most-visited destination in Southern California, there is truly something for everyone.

Work-out at Muscle Beach

Test your strength at Muscle Beach. Known as the most famous outdoor gym in the world, Muscle Beach is home to both local bodybuilders and beach tourists. Although a new wave of physical fitness buffs show up often, some of the original "old timers" of the golden era still stop by from time to time.

Visit the Famous Santa Monica Pier

Stroll the length of the Boardwalk from our hotel, and you'll land at the famous Santa Monica Pier. With its roller coaster, carousel, the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, shops, a video arcade, various pubs, and plenty of restaurants, there is plenty of entertainment waiting for you. During the summer months, the Santa Monica pier holds weekly outdoor concerts, movies, and other family friendly activities - many that are free to the public.

Stroll the Venice Beach Canals

Designed to mirror the famous canals of Venice, Italy, the Venice Canal Historic District is a must-see attraction when staying at the Inn at Venice Beach. Featured in romantic comedies like "Valentine's Day", this LA filming hot spot offers a colorful, yet tranquil setting ideal for date night or a mid-afternoon stroll.
