Venice Beach; last day.

Friday 27th Oct

It was another sunny and beautiful morning for our last day in the US. We headed out for a final beach walk before breakfast, taking a southerly route this time. Check out wasn’t until 3pm and we planned to spend the morning at Venice Beach taking two of the Detour walking tours.

The first walking tour was ok as it gave us a bit of history about the development of the Venice Beach area and it took us to some of the remaining Canals that we wouldn’t have found on our own. It was fascinating to think that the whole area was once just canals! The second tour was not quite as good but there were two highlights: one was seeing where Snapchat is located and we also saw Muscle Beach, where Arnold Schwarzenegger started at his body building career.

It was midday by the time we finished these walks, notching up 10.7 Km for the day thus far, and so we took an Uber back to the hotel to rest up by the pool prior to check out.
