After 3 days of heavy eating and drinking, I finally had some time on my own to visit Venice. I cannot believe I couldn't make it out here earlier, but my schedule had kept me really busy. Anyhow, my suite case broke so I had no choice. After seeing the $300 suite cases at the Samsonite store in Carlsbad, I decided to go get the $30 ones at Venice.

When you get to Venice, you are immediately amazed at how many people there are. The mixture was a bit different then usually because of all the USC fans walking around before the big game against Notre Dame. I walked a little North stopped by Muscle Beach and took a quick look at the skaters, basketball players and basically everything in between. Venice is the one place where you can do anything you want. The guy over at the rocks even wanted to smoke a Joint with me and that's at around 1pm. Remember that this is not Amsterdam and this is extremely liberal for US standards.

Anyhow, I think the pictures speak for themselves. I love this place, what can I say.

Charleston Travel guide

Charleston, SC, United StatesKing Street, the main shopping street in town, cuts through Broad Street, and the most trafficked tourist area ends a few blocks south of the Crosstown, where U.S. 17 cuts across Upper King. Downtown you can explore most areas by foot. Otherwise, bikes, pedicab rickshaws, and cabs are the best way to get around, as the bus and shuttle system has been in flux for years, street parking is irksome, and tickets are given freely. Beyond downtown, the Ashley River hugs the west side of the peninsula, and the region on the far shore is called West Ashley. The Cooper River runs along the east side of the peninsula, with Mount Pleasant on the... Read more »
