Venice is a Top 3 Winner as The 2020 Best Coastal Small Town in USA, by USA Today...
So Proud of the town, where I grew up... I was blessed to walk these beautiful streets,before the world knew about them. From Venice Ave, to Miami Ave. to Tampa Ave and all the shops, cafes, restaurants and the Gazebo at the center of it all. Not to mention a beautiful walk, shaded by magnificent trees,as you head towards Venice Beach. The Sharkstooth Capital of the World, is a treasure. If you haven't been in awhile, visit again and you'll see and taste things, you never experienced before. And if you've never been, what are you waiting for? - Maverick
