Venice is touristy and has some shady characters. It's the coastal version of Hollywood Blvd.

Santa Monica beach is a little closer to westwood. You can park at the mall there for free for 1.5 hours and walk around. I do this a lot. If you go over, it's only a few bucks. It beats the overpriced parking on the beach if you're not going to be there super long.

I used to prefer Venice to Santa Monica. I prefer Santa Monica. And in all honesty, I kinda hate Santa Monica. It's what I'd consider "ghetto"
