Venice Beach, CA (aka. theCHIVE’s backyard) has a brand all its own (31 Photos)

The Venice Boardwalk is certainly one of the country’s (and the world’s) great melting pots of culture, diversity and often creepy randomness. Is everybody this insane? Not quite, but it’s not far off.

    Venice beach really is a freakshow, but it's not as bad as these pictures make it look.

    For every freak there is a gorgeous chick walking down the same board walk.

    I love Venice, chock full of fuck stains though! Miss smoking herb with the Rastas on the beach. Muscle Beach is a JOKE.

    The island of lost souls. With the exception of the 9th Ward, possibly the most depressing place I've ever visited in the U.S.

    • anarcrust

      Did you take the time to talk to any of these people? Or did you just say "Ew, dirty street people" and run back home?
