Canals, Bodybuilding, & Vintage Shops
Just 2 Miles South of The Georgian Hotel
Nestled just 2 miles south of our hotel in Santa Monica, CA, Venice Beach is notorious for its bustling boardwalk with musicians, singers, jugglers, acrobats, magicians, fortune tellers, and other street entertainers. In addition to epic people-watching, the boardwalk also provides enough shops and stores to buy almost anything. From skate shops to tattoo parlors to juice spots, you name it, the Boardwalk has it!
Also located near the boardwalk, guests can visit Muscle Beach - home to both amateur and professional bodybuilders and Gold’s Gym, the place where Arnold Schwarzenegger was first discovered! Today, Muscle Beach is an open playground with a gated area that encloses weight lifting equipment, while the other area includes a sand box with gymnastic, rope climbing, and acrobatic bars.
