This 4-hour walking tour is conducted by a native Californian and life-long local resident of Old Ocean Park and Santa Monica. The walking tour will start in Old Ocean Park and Main Street and the historic neighboorhood where the California skateboard and surfing lifestyles were born. We will go to the boardwalk at the beach, where skateboarding and surfing remain part of the California lifestyle, and continue on to the famous Venice Beach boardwalk, home to all the 'crazies' and eccentrics that make this community so special. Finally we will visit the Venice Canals, covering the amazing history of the founder of this unique city.
I was born in Santa Monica, California, and have lived here almost my entire life. I have many interesting and fun 'behind the scenes' stories to share with you, and sites to see that only a native and long time resident of the city would know about. I am by profession a neuropsychologist (Ph.D.), and semi-retired. I enjoy sharing my city with others. Let's have a fun afternoon or morning together. I am also available for an evening pub crawl.
