Venice is just weird. However, if you love a carnival atmosphere that is loud, proud and unapologetic, well, you're not weird, you're home. Speedo-clad men at Muscle Beach may give you the chills or the creeps, depending on the wearer's age. Off the boardwalk, you can dash through the boarders, bladers and surfers to the safety of laid-back cafes and boutiques, and at night in this area is magic: big sand, big surf and a lighted Ferris wheel.
