At one point or another in our lives, we’ve all probably had that same vacation experience of having our parents drag us to some place that they wanted to go, feeling bored and maybe even resentful while they tried to enjoy themselves. No parent wants their kids to have that experience, nor do they want to have to deal with unhappy children when they’re just trying to have fun.
Venice Beach is a cool and intriguing place for adults, but what about for kids? Turns out that this lively and colorful place can be just as exciting for children as it is for parents with many kid-friendly Venice Beach attractions.
The Best Kid-Friendly Attractions in Venice Beach
Named by GQ Magazine as the Coolest Block in America for its plethora Venice Beach attractions, Abbot Kinney Blvd. has a unique and beautiful one-mile stretch home to art galleries, restaurants, and shops. It’s a great place to walk around and take in the sights. If you happen to be in this area on the first Friday of the month, you can catch Abbot Kinney First Fridays, where food trucks come and events are held from 5:00pm to 11:00pm.
Another fantastic place for sightseeing is the Venice Beach Boardwalk, where there are a number of art installations, street performers, souvenir shops, and more. Additionally, no trip to Venice Beach is complete without visiting the Venice Canals, designed after the canals of Venice, Italy.
At the end of Washington Blvd. on the Venice Beach Pier, the Venice Oceanarium sets up its mobile museum exhibits on Sundays from 11:30am until 2:30pm, both on the beach and the pier. The reDiscover Center is a fascinating art center where kids can make crafts and inventions using recycled materials. Check them out Monday through Friday between 3:00pm and 6:00pm and from 11:00am until 5:00pm on the weekends.
On the pier, you can also take your kids fishing without chartering a boat. The sunset views are incredible.
Venice Beach Skate Park is also ideal if you have a little skater in the family, spanning 16,000 square feet of space. If no one in your family skates, you can simply enjoy the spectacle of the awesome skating that takes place here.
