Welcome to world famous Venice Beach!, the last bastion of the true free spirit of California. There is nothing like it elsewhere in the world, except maybe your childhood experience of going to the circus for the first time, or going to the country fair next to the great big Pacific Ocean. It is one big giant block party every weekend where tourist and locals come together to celebrate the art of life.
What makes Venice Beach unique is not just the sheer number of people who come here, or the "freak show" as so many locals fondly refer to, or the wonderful tropical beach settings, but it is the people who are the central attraction of this wonderful stage. People from all walks of life leave their differences behind, and you can feel the electricity of camaraderie and celebration of human interaction through art, music, laughter, and nature. The free spirit is alive and well here and it is not manufactured or produced by some mass media or corporate agenda, it is pure, it is simple, and it can't be taken away because it is in the heart of the people.
