I’m in LA staying at a hotel in Venice. Originally from around the Bay Area and I like to here more for staying outdoors as a temporary outdoor thing. Is it a good idea? Not as grungy as downtown and I came here for this type of thing but does anyone do it/have tried it or at similar places and like it? Even the tent people vibe here includes some “normal” looking youth like older teen and early twenties in a tent who got into some fight which is kinda part of the tent vibe even on the beach.
Seems kinda cool ish to try.

I walked to venice beach once during a long lay over en route to Tucson, and dug it but wasn't there long. All I can really recommend is that you are in walking distance of the krishna temple. Please keep us updated! Venice beach is on my list for places to sell art, but I was most definitely there at the wrong time to try.

Reddit talks a lot of shit about Venice Beach but if you have seen the fight vibe then you know as much as I do LOL.

I lived in a van for three years in LA and my regret wasn't seeing more of it. I hope you can find good adventures and I think if you keep aware and soberish you'll be fine.
