With 53 winter days on the Venice, Santa Monica border, I'm looking for non-guidebook ideas.

I love exploring neighborhoods with creative people and shops. Artisan bakeries, organic markets, art galleries, maybe antique shops, quirky imaginative places, fringe theater and music. Things like these but of high quality. Luxury not necessary, but talent and taste, yes.

I've only been to Santa Monica and Venice once, but from what I hear from friends who have lived in both, you will probably find Venice too grungy. I hear the crime rate there is also a lot higher, so you might be better off living in Santa Monica and just driving over to Venice.

Margaret Gazey Ocean park area in santa monica 90405, west of Lincoln . Walk to Main Street shops and restaurants. Lots of creative people live in the area and not far from Abbott Kinney in Venice which is really popular for restaurants, creative stores etc.
ragwort Thanks, Margaret. I've taken a place in Venice, but right on the border so I can explore both towns easily. Main Street is a short walk and it's a top priority.
