I'm a small person, but never have I felt so tiny as I did during my visit to Muscle Beach. We decided to check out the Muscle Beach Championships in Venice a couple months ago and I felt like a plankton lost in a sea of giant squid. Giant squid with taut muscles who drink Muscle Milk and don handlebar mustaches.
Muscle Beach is the former home of bodybuilder legends like Arnold Schwartzenegger. It has not only weight lifting equipment, but also gymnastic, rope climbing, and acrobatic bars. The park has turned into a tourist attraction and it's free to the public. Oil up, chug a protein shake and flex your six pack at this one-of-a-kind beach.
