trict is known for its Ocean Front Walk – the Boardwalk – and is peopled with artists, street performers, Tarot card readers and fortune tellers, performers, music and vendors of numerous products. Venice Pier, at the end of Washington Boulevard, attracts sun-seekers, surfers, swimmers, people who roller blade, and those renting bicycles to ride down the bike path toward Santa Monica or to Dockweiler Beach and beyond. Numerous movies and TV shows have been filmed at Venice Beach, such as “Speed” with Sandra Bullock, “Baywatch,” and documentary films like “The Lords of Dogtown,” chronicling modern skateboarding.
Muscle Beach - The original Muscle Beach was made famous by Jack LaLanne, health guru, TV and international fitness celebrity. It was the place for bodybuilders and weight lifters, airborne tumblers, wrestlers, and Hollywood stars, and has been described as the epicenter of the fitness revolution. Some of the celebrities that made Muscle Beach famous, according to musclebeach.net/smonica are Steve “Hercules” Reeves, international movie star and champion bodybuilder; Joe Gold, founder of Gold’s Gym and World Gym, a pioneer weightlifter, bodybuilder and star volleyball player; George Eiferman, “Mr. Universe”; Bert Goodrich the first “Mr. America”; Russ Saunders, celebrated gymnast and stuntman for Gene Kelly; Pudgy Stockton, pioneer woman weightlifter and bodybuilder; and dozens more.
For dining and shopping, Abbot Kinney Boulevard, named after Venice founder Abbot Kinney, has a mix of casual and fine dining, art galleries, bars, and eclectic shops. On the first of every month, First Friday is celebrated with businesses staying open late, food trucks of all types providing a variety of culinary treats, and thousands of people joining in the vibrant energy of the area. The Venice Canal Historic District, located between Venice and Washington boulevards, harkens back to their Abbot Kinney days as he commissioned man-made canals built in 1905 as part of his “Venice of America” concept. Beautiful homes grace the canals, and walking down the sidewalks is like going back in time.
Tourists would flock to Muscle Beach, hoping to see someone famous, or just to watch the amazing competitions. Joe Wheatley has been
