"An early morning fight between homeless encampment residents on the world famous Venice Beach Boardwalk. Police did not respond, no arrests made."


At 3.4 square miles, Venice, California is a small town with an impossibly large footprint on the world. For more than 100 years, Venice has been a multi-cultural mecca for creativity, diversity, and personal expression.

However, in this time of rapid change, the people, stories, and events that have made Venice, California a global destination are at risk of being forgotten.

The Venice Heritage Museum is an opportunity to preserve and celebrate over a century's worth of stories, collections, and archives from one of America’s most legendary cities—Venice, California.

Our museum campus will serve as a common ground and a town square for all of Venice's residents and the millions of tourists who visit each year, located in Venice-of-America Centennial Park just west of Abbot Kinney Blvd and adjacent to the Venice-Abbot Kinney Memorial Branch Library along the gateway to Venice.

Help bring the first-ever museum for Venice to life! Support our campaign to fund the first phase of the project by May 18, 2021: www.tinyurl.com/veniceheritage


"Homeless encampments have take over the world famous Venice Beach Boardwalk. Fights are an all day every day occurrence now. This once beautiful tourist destination is being rapidly destroyed by the failed policies of local politicians."

"Today I visit the world famous Muscle Beach in Santa Monica, where it all started. Then I went to Venice, I sadly have to report that the gym is gone. Most of the outside activities are still closed down. I matched up pictures of Arnold Schwarzenegger when he first came to Venice Beach. After this, I visit the famous Gold's Gym, and I also saw all the homeless encampments around Gol'ds Gym in Venice."

In today's video, German in Venice spots that singer Rihanna and gets hassled by her too-stupid-to-do-his-job-properly bodygaurd for filming her. We see a lot of "celebs" in Venice with their bodygaurds, but Rihanna's is not only an asshole, but he has got to be one of the most dumbest ones we witnessed.

"Today Rihanna came to Venice Beach to bike ride and shop," says German in Venice, "I followed her with my camera and her bodyguards tried a couple times to stop me from filming her and stop following her around. It seemed like it didn’t really bother Rihanna because I kept my distance."

"Today I heard that there was a big gray whale stuck on Dockweiler State Beach. He was still alive, but since the tide was so low he could not swim back into the ocean. They had to wait until high tide. I was there for a few hours, but then the sun went down, so I really do not know what happened to the whale. Hopefully he could find his way out back into the ocean."
