What you'll do

We’ll start off with a peaceful stroll through the beautiful, calm Venice canals. Then, we’ll take a short walk up to Abbott Kinney, the popular must-see shopping street in Venice. After that we’ll head to the Venice sign, where you can take your picture under the well-known, cool historic sign. Then it’s time to rent bikes! We’ll head down the boardwalk with them to take in the local vibe and see Venice’s quirky, artsy side. After that we’ll hop on the bike path along the ocean and head to Santa Monica. There we’ll take a pit stop at Buffalo Exchange, the shopping destination for everything unique and sometimes vintage. If we’re hungry we can catch a bite at the local favorite Urth Caffe, or another welcoming spot if there’s something you’re craving. From there we’ll head to 3rd Street Promenade, where you can see the best Santa Monica has to offer in shopping. We can stay as long or little as you like. After that we’ll hop back on our bikes and head to the Santa Monica Pier- our final & one of my personal favorite destinations. We’ll lock our bikes and walk to the end of the pier, taking in the live musicians, art for sale, and the breathtaking Pacific Ocean views. Once we’ve had our fill, we’ll hop back on the bike path back to Venice where we’ll drop off our bikes and call it a day. And that, is a true best day in the life of a local.

Leah

I fell in love with LA and I want you too also! I am a local California honey who knows where to go & what to see in West LA. Powered by my bicycle, I have discovered all the local spots that offer a full on SoCal experience. Shopping? I know where. The best ice cream? Count on me. Best place to catch the sunset? I got you. When I travel I always long to know what it’s like to actually live in a place, rather than be a tourist. That’s what I’m here to show you.

Things to keep in mind

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 10 and up can attend. Keep in mind there is walking and bicycling, but there will be opportunities to rest whenever needed (including stops for coffee, lunch if wanted, etc.).

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

There is a fair amount of walking & bicycling involved. For the person in general good health it should be fine. If you have problems walking or being active for more than 2 hours, it may not be the best fit for you. We will also be renting bicycles, so allow (under $40) for bicycle rental and ID.
