Venice's Main Street and cross street Abbot Kinney Boulevard (focus your efforts here) are peppered with fun cafés, offbeat niche boutiques, and trendy lifestyle shops. The area is more laidback than other shopping districts around LA, so you can enjoy refreshingly low-key browsing.

WHY WE LIKE IT
Venice is great for a relaxed LA shopping trip. Our recommended day out: browse the nifty shops, stop at one of the many California-cool cafés for a light lunch, carry on shopping or check out Venice beach, and finish off with a stellar cocktail at one of Abbot Kinney’s many hip lounges.
GOOD TO KNOW
If you’re looking for cool Euro-style fashions, check out designer boutiques Salt and Heist on Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Principessa (also on Abbot Kinney) has a fun collection of indie bags, shoes, and jewelry. Take a lunch break at 3 Square or Joe’s, a coffee break at Intelligentsia Coffee, or enjoy a macaron in the garden at Jin Patisserie.
