Cliktrips likes the beach, palm trees, mountain hikes, desertscapes, forest walks, the jungle, tropical islands, swimming pools, lake swims, rocky seaside cliffs, sunsets, soundbaths, hot tubs, the occasional cold plunge, bicycle rides, road trips, spritzes of all kinds, lots of snacks and the colors pink and green. Cliktrips also enjoys late night techno parties, balearic rooftop hangs, weird weekenders, tropical sounds, trippy disco, and dancing ‘til dawn.

A quick list of current spots to check out in Venice Beach, CA.

Tlapazola Mexican

636 Venice Blvd, Venice, CA 90291 (310) 822-7561

This Mexican spot is never crowded, far from pretentious and always delicious with a killer tequila selection… go, go, go…. They just have no idea how to market themselves and I can’t believe it’s not more crowded than it is….

Bellissimo Venice

68 N Venice Blvd, Venice, CA 90291 (310) 305-2430

Bellissimo serves a delicious veggie breakfast burrito, make sure you ask for extra sliced jalapeños and Cholula hot sauce inside. Perfect to grab and go and take to the beach.

Poke Poke

Poke Poke is one of the only bright spots for food on the boardwalk. Yummy ahi tuna bowls and macadamia nuts and kale please.

El Huarique

1301 Ocean Front Walk, Venice, CA 90291 (310) 452-1254

El Huarique is a total hole in the wall Peruvian spot (also on the boardwalk). Delicious ceviche made fresh in front of you, amazing rotisserie chicken, plantains and that spicy, creamy green sauce. Yum.

La Isla Bonita Taco Truck

4th St. & Rose Ave., Venice, CA

Everything from the truck is pretty much under $3 and really delicious.
