Fodor's Review

The surf and sand of Venice are fine, but the main attraction here is the boardwalk scene, which is a cosmos all its own. Go on weekend afternoons for the best people-watching experience. There are also swimming, fishing, surfing, skateboarding, racquetball, handball, shuffleboard, and basketball (it's the site of some of L.A.'s most hotly contested pickup games). You can rent a bike or some in-line skates and hit the Strand bike path.
