We'll start in Venice-the #1 tourist destination in California, to catch a glimpse of surfers, sailboats, canals and then the posh shops and art galleries of Abbot Kinney-aptly named the hippest street in America by GQ Magazine.
Then it’s off to Muscle Beach, Dogtown’s skateboard park, rollerskaters and famous basketball courts-along the way see artists in action at the graffiti wall, murals, old brothels, speakeasies, movie studios, secret walk-streets and street performers on one of the top ten boardwalks in the US-from Rastafarians at the drum circle to chain-saw jugglers, fire-breathers, guys walking on glass, break dancers, acrobats, and hear about local legends Charlie Chaplin, Jim Morrison and Arnold Schwarzennegger-it offers an unforgettable cultural experience!
Then we head to Santa Monica’s Original Muscle Beach, the pier’s ferris Wheel and famous Route 66 sign, stories of local celebrities, the bourgeois Promenade shops, musical performances, historical landmarks, amazing architecture, hidden gems, fruit trees and gardens at Tongva Park-there will be great photo opportunities at each stop!
We will be bicycling for approximately 2.5 hours depending on everyone's pace.
Other things to note
Rain or extremely windy weather will cancel the tour. If you can-tips are appreciated :)

My family grew up in Santa Monica and I love to share the local lore, legends and landmarks. I work out at muscle beach, have done stand-up comedy, studied film and love to point out all of the local movie locations, famous celebrity homes and haunts. I come from a family of artists, worked in local galleries and love to point out hidden murals. I’ve led tours for a decade including the Venice Art Crawl and as VP for the Venice Historical Society with clients that have included Google and LA city council members. Let me show you the best photo opportunities at the beach in Los Angeles!

Her skal du være

The westside. As the locals say, we’ll be AWOL—Always West of Lincoln—Lincoln being the street that separates the beach from the city. See why Santa Monica was voted among the Top Ten Beach Cities in the World by National Geographic and why Venice is the #1 tourist destination in California. We can even head the other direction to beautiful Marina Del Rey and view the world’s largest small boat craft harbor.

My 20 something daughter and I very much enjoyed the experience. We lucked out because it was a gorgeous day and the ride was not strenuous at all. Barbara was super accommodating and flexible which added to our enjoyment. Loved exploring all the nooks and crannies of the Venice neighborhood. Recommend going booking earliest ride as the street parking is much easier on the weekend and after the ride you are able to have lunch near by.

We had such a great time on this tour with Barbara! We are new to the area so it was a cool way to learn about the historic background and all the ways the area has changed over the years. It was a great way to explore the area and see all the exciting things that Venice and Santa Monica have to offer. Barbara was very accommodating and kept the tour lively and interesting throughout. Highly recommend!!
