“Sundays are perfect for Venice Beach. You can do some light shopping, especially if you love vintage, plus there are great resturants and murals to check out. You can finish a nice afternoon of roaming around Venice with a cool drink.”

The Venice berm stretches from the pier all along the length of the south parking lot, so despite being a hotspot, there's always plenty of room for everyone. These slopes are usually the biggest of the berms on the coast, making them the go-to spot for young sledders (and grown-ups) looking for the best thrill ride. Late December or early January is usually the best time to visit, as the sand has gotten packed down, making for a smoother and faster ride. Parking in the lot can run from $8-$12.
