LA is so replete with wonderful neighborhoods each with an essence all their own... The neighborhoods are often defined by a main strip just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. Abbot Kinney is an eclectic strip in Venice Beach. It's a little bit hippy, a little bit arty, a dash fancy and a lot enticing! The mix of galleries, boutiques, restaurants, antique shops, and floral shops beckon you to come browse and spend! A few shops I never miss are Undrest by the Sea, Heist and Bountiful (the first two of which I was too busy shopping to consider photographing!). My cousin, sister and I found some wonderful goodies, ate an INCREDIBLE meal at our favorite restaurant JGelina (tomorrow's post), and generally ambled along all while breathing in the glorious sea air!
I hope you enjoyed our little jaunt and got a sense of how wonderful it is to spend an afternoon on Abbot Kinney!
