An LA institution and local favourite. Mexican food doesn't get any better than this. And yes, that older Mexican woman is making fresh tortillas from scratch. No reservations, so be prepared to wait for 30 mins or so on weekends.

Only 5 minutes from the house by bike (3 minutes by car), this casual neighbourhood spot features a hundred craft beers on tap, an extensive menu, a great happy hour and big screens all around to catch the game. Sit at the huge bar or grab a table on the patio. Probably the best Chicken Cobb Salad in LA. Tons of free parking right across the street.

Great little, casual come-as-you-are spot for breakfast or lunch in the heart of Venice. The menu is extensive and the food is as delicious as it is varied. Park your bikes out front, eat on the outdoor patio and take a couple of fresh baguettes to go.

Stroll through the canals that are the name sake of Venice. They were originally constructed in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney and are best accessed off Washington Blvd, along the main channel directly south of Baja Cantina.

Named the "Coolest Street in America" by GQ Magazine. Lots of funky shops and great places to eat. First Friday's: There’s no better way to check out the art (and the shopping) on Abbot Kinney Boulevard, located in the heart of Venice, than stopping by on the first Friday of every month. The event starts around 6 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. The neighborhood merchants come together to feature the best artists, gifts, products and music. And, of course, beverages are available.
