Summer is basically here- the weather is gorgeous and sunny- so what better way to spend your weekend than at the beach! Here is a list of some of the Culturistas' favorite LA beaches!

Venice Beach-- probably the most interesting beach of LA--- attracting artists, tourists, bohemian types and quirky characters. If you want to take a bike ride, a walk, or just people watch, this is the place to go! Things to see:
Venice Art Walls: The Venice Public Art Walls are located on the sand in the heart of Venice Beach. Basically anyone can paint/graffiti on the walls if you have a permit.
Muscle Beach: The outdoor workout area made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger and other bodybuilders.
Venice Canals: The canals were built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney. There are 6 remaining canal bridges left- and make a serene and relaxing walk- You can walk along them in the area bordered by Washington, South Venice Blvd., Pacific Ave. and Ocean Ave.

Dockweiler Beach--Dockweiler is the only beach in LA where you can have a bonfire! So if you are looking for a fun summer night at the beach- this could be the place. Check it out at: 12001 Vista del Mar
Playa Del Rey, CA 90293

Paradise Cove
-- Probably the prettiest beach in LA- Paradise Cove has been used for filming shows like the OC and Baywatch. The beach is located north of Malibu just off Highway 1. There is also the "Beach Cafe" located right on the beach--perfect if you get hungry.
