Enjoy a relaxed motorcoach drive to the heart of Venice. Disembark with your guide and stroll its eclectic residential canal streets admiring the varied architecture reflected in the waterways. Continue your stroll to the famed boardwalk along Venice Beach, where colorful shops, cafes and street vendors take center stage. You'll see Muscle Beach, where Arnold Schwarzenegger pumped iron, outdoor basketball courts and a host of eye-popping murals that adorn the buildings and beach walls. With skateboarders, surfers and sunbathers, Venice offers a true Los Angeles experience. Next, a short and scenic drive takes you to Santa Monica with its iconic beach and nostalgic wood pier. You'll have plenty of time to explore, ride the landmark carousel and the solar-powered Ferris wheel, and win a stuffed animal souvenir. Then, do a little shopping at the Third Street Promenade, an outdoor, tree-lined mall brimming with trendy boutiques and restaurants. Return to port after your lovely day.
