Venice or Buras, LA

Advice needed, pros and cons on both places. Definitely going in October and just needed a little inside info. Thanks, Mike.

Wonder if you made your trip? I am looking to make one down there late summer, would like to pick your brain for info.

Venice without a doubt, 2 choices of marinas Venice Marina or the higher end Cypress Cove but both are fine and you can stay at them or there are numerous guide operated lodges nearby.
Thanks !
