We did the typical drive up, get out, snap snap snap and drive off. I did get back in the car first, he didn't drive off without me. It's a pretty impressive piece. I love big roadside attractions and this one is pretty cool!

A very peculiar building that used to house the advertising agency TBWA\Chiat\Day. Meanwhile the agency moved on but the building still is one of its kind!

We've always loved the "distinctly Frank" architecture of the Chiat-Day since it was first built, and still enjoy driving by or walking by during the annual Venice Art Walk. Most catching is the Claes Oldenburg huge binoculars - they are a Wow factor. We walked around the outside as there are no interior tours. Enjoy the sight! ...

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
