The Concierge Questionnaire: Elisabeth Röhm,  Actress and Author

What is your favorite word to describe Venice? Eccentric.

What word best reflects the people of Venice? Unconventional.

What is the most creative, spiritual or emotional place in Venice? The ocean and the beach.

What is your favorite outdoor activity in Venice? Bicycling. It’s something I do with my family that can last all day. There is a bike path by the beach, my daughter sits in her bike seat and we stop along the way, get something to eat and shop – a family expedition!

The Strand is a paved bicycle path that runs mostly along the Pacific Ocean shoreline in Southern California. Please visit LAbikepaths.com for a map and additional information on the over eight mile stretch from Santa Monica through Venice!

What is your favorite indoor activity in Venice? Dining. I’m a cook that loves Venice living – grilling and fresh salads. I’m also a big fan of Bobby Flay’s Southern meets North California cuisine. It’s an eternal summer in Venice.

What is your favorite sound or noise in Venice? The buzz of the Venice Boardwalk.

The Venice Boardwalk is a busy two and a half mile pedestrian promenade that features restaurants, shops, vendors, musicians and other “eclectic” entertainment!

What is your favorite smell or taste in Venice? The smell of the ocean. When you live by the ocean the air is very different, at night especially. Also, in the morning, I feel such a strong connection to the water.

What drink best reflects Venice? Some kind of blended juice – a spinach, mango, coconut and pineapple smoothie! Lots of health nuts here… people are very visceral and enjoy taking a bite out of life.

What song or type of music best reflects Venice? Anything that is old or new, but not pop culture. You are just as likely to hear The Grateful Dead out of the back of a VW Bus, as a young musician plucking and singing something original.

If Heaven were Venice, what would God say to a visitor when they arrive at the Pearly Gates? God would quote John Lennon: “Free the people now...” –"Bring On The Lucie (Freda People)"
