My advice is to stay away from this place....because once you try it, you will not be able to stop from returning over and over again. Salt & Straw has redefined how ice cream will be seen by me and countless others. The flavors are...More

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
