Have to be honest and say this is a bit of a head scratcher… but hey – I guess being a “freak show free-for-all” gets you international notice. CNN came out with a reader poll today to rank the worlds top beaches. Venice Beach, Ca was #73 and was described like this:
73. Venice Beach, California, United States
This beachfront district is a SoCal institution and a freak show free-for-all. Qi gong masseurs, hair braiders, fortune-tellers and artists jostle along the 2½-mile Venice Boardwalk.
Highlight: Beachfront outdoor basketball courts — competition can be fierce on weekends and early evenings.
We didn’t make it on their Facebook ranking page… so I tossed it in for good measure. LOL
