Paved bike path runs from Santa Monica to Redondo Beach. 2021: beware of the massive HOMELESS encampments lining the neighborhood streets and lawns. "often appears to be on drugsā€”has prostituted women in the RVs, in addition to dealing methamphetamine to other homeless people" Venice is the newest Skid Row, with the ocean. See Crime links below
