Mural and Random Scenes

The Good: Public Art
Venice Beach is known as an off-beat town, but it's popular with tourists and we've visited there several times. There's plenty of art, from large murals to tattoo parlors.

For the Random-osity blog hop, I'm counting a picture of storefronts as "Random." The bright green shop appears to be a doctor's office advertising medical marijuana, but online reviews tell a different story.

At least the "fun" is genuine. Hundreds of people were enjoying the souvenir vendors, the beach, biking, and strolling.

The Random: Street by the Beach
The Fun: Biking

  1. Beautiful photos, surely this is a nice place! Excellent mural!

  2. It all looks so wonderful!

  3. These store fronts are definitely different. I like the sculpture by the bike path.

  4. I have been there but it was years ago.

  5. That looks a great place. I've heard of Venice Beach. And that's quite an amazing mural!

  6. Love the murals! I could go for a walk in the sunshine or a bike ride!

  7. Venice Beach sounds like my kind of place. Tom The Backroads Traveller
