Living in LA definitely has its perks. For me, one of the first and foremost is the fact that I am within 20-30 minutes driving distance from 4 different beaches. This past weekend, I spent an evening at Venice Beach.
For those of you who have never been there, I find it to be one of the most interesting places in the country. It has such a diverse array of all kinds of people who can be found working the local shops, working the market stands, or street performing. In one area, there’s a small skate park and right next to it a little area that serves as a roller skating rink. It’s a lot of fun to just chill in this area and watch the skaters and rollerbladers do there thing, especially because the roller skaters skate-dance to music that they are playing. There’s also a bike path, beach volleyball courts, and basketball courts all along the beach and the boardwalk.
