Voted the coolest street in the world. Not sure how so much can be contained on one two mile stretch, but in Venice, California on Abbot Kinney Boulevard that is the case. There’s hipster coffee shops, yoga studios, the original TOMS store, dive bars, gay bars, trendy upscale restaurants, unmarked restaurants you need to hear about from others to know about, and last but certainly not least, some of the best people watching you can find. If you’ve never been to Abbot Kinney, you’ve got to go. Make a reservation at Axe or Primitivo, my two favorite restaurants, get there a little early and wander around soaking in the atmosphere. After dinner, enjoy bar hopping all the way down the boulevard.
