Iconic LA - the Westside is full of bronzed beautiful people trying the next workout craze or fad diet. Rent a bike or take a jog along the paved path from Venice all the way to Malibu to experience quintessential California living.
Tech companies have descended on some of LA's most desirable real estate. More than 500 tech companies call this stretch of Santa Monica, Venice and Marina Del Rey home. But before the Westside was dubbed Silicon Beach, it was just the beach. Probably one of the most iconic beaches in the nation. From Ferris Wheel on the Santa Monica Pier to the body builders and street art along Venice Muscle Beach, the Westside has no shortage of tanned beautiful people. Drive down Ocean Avenue for sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean or take a stroll down 3rd Street Promenade for shopping at this outdoor mall. Main Street in Santa Monica is a great place to get food and drinks. If you are looking for something hipper Abbot Kinney is the place for you. This couple block stretch in Venice has great shops, restaurants and cafes including, Gjelina, Tasting Kitchen and Intelligentsia Coffee.
