Venice Beach, just south of Santa Monica, is an eclectic, funky, and definitely unique place where sidewalk vendors line the boardwalk selling their wares, many of the items homemade; and street performers entertain the passing crowds by performing their unusual talents.
The Cam is pointing south along the boardwalk, displaying the bike path, beach, pavilion area and the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
One of the most interesting times to view Beach Cam is during the weekend, when up to 150,000 people a day visit this exciting place called Venice Beach.
