ABBOT KINNEY

It's all Abbot Kinney.  Here we are in sunny L.A., and my friend and I just hoped in my Fiat with the top back and headed to the beach, Venice Beach that is.  We felt like we were on a vacation or a stay-cation in our case.  Abbot Kinney doesn't look like it once did, but we all need to reinvent ourselves at some stage of the game.  You can still feel the renaissance and the "cool" factor of Venice Beach.  Abbot Kinney will revive your soul, bring out your creative spirit and turn you into a tourist in your own town.

One of the many large murals of Venice Beach. You can even take a walking tour to learn about the artist.
