Enjoy the Famous Venice Beach
Whatever you're into, the things to do in Venice Beach are never ending. The area offers hipster watching, street art, fine dining, skate parks and more for everyone from all walks of life. Hotel Erwin is centrally located and just about everything fun is just a short walk away. (We won't mind if you never want to leave the hotel to begin with, though. We can hardly blame you.
What to do in Venice Beach
Venice Beach offers a little bit of everything: the beach, the boardwalk, beautiful canals and plenty of nightlife. You can take in the scene with cultural offerings and entertainment or satisfy your craving for unique cuisine with many dining options. There's also plenty of shopping (this is California, after all).
Venice Beach is like the guy you know who is the life of the party: warm, welcoming and positive without trying too hard. What can we say? People just gravitate toward Venice. It's a melting pot of young and old, locals and travelers, traditional artisans and tech-savvy rule-breakers. From the famous Muscle Beach to the authentic hole-in-the-wall spots you don't want to share with your friends back home, Venice Beach has a casual and welcoming atmosphere that's never snobby or pretentious.
Shopping on Abbot Kinney Blvd
Don't miss Abbot Kinney Boulevard for shopping, cultural experiences and dining. Abbot Kinney is home to a dense concentration of forward-thinking design and apparel shops. You'll find eclectic indie offerings, plenty of art and even some antiques.
Enjoying Santa Monica
While you're in town, you'll want to explore Santa Monica, which offers an oldschool pier with amusement park rides and action-filled fun. Carve out an evening at the Third Street Promenade which offers upscale shopping, dining and entertainment. And in case you didn't get enough of the beaches? Yes, Santa Monica has those too.
Neighboring Marina Del Rey
Enjoy a taste of the high life at Marina Del Rey, just two miles from Venice Beach. The Marina is home to over 5,000 boats and plenty of waterfront dining. If boating isn't your forte, rent a kayak and go for a man-powered cruise. There's shopping, parasailing, fishing and something to tickle just about anyone's fancy.
Nearby LA Metro Area
The Los Angeles Metropolitan area (or LA Metro, if you're in the know) is just around the corner from Hotel Erwin, making our hotel a convenient place to crash if you're playing or working in LA Metro. The area is a hub for the entertainment industry, international trade and technology. LA Metro is also home to theme parks, shopping and some of the area's freshest dining.
