This story was originally published on February 24.]We're constantly trolling Venice Beach
for a non-dilapidated pad that fits the budget (and has more than a rabbit den of closet space). But alas, not all of us are fortunate enough to wake up each morning in our Cali Craftsmen to the fresh beach air and artsy scene that permeates the happening 'hood.
To hit the reset button, a relaxing Saturday or wild First Friday spent strolling down Abbot Kinney could certainly suffice. It's a long jaunt down the boho Boulevard, though, and unless you've got serious stamina, you'll never be able to hit up every spot in sight. This is why we've kindly pounded the pavement for you, to take the guesswork and legwork out of your next weekend adventure
. Grab the best bloody on the block, do some tipsy shopping at a dope design store, and buy a new bikini to rock on the Boardwalk afterward. And don't forget your pup — this street caters to canines more than any other
! So...Westside Rentals, here you come?
