About Santa Monica
Enticing for visitors from around the world, Santa Monica includes both mountain and beachfront views. Santa Monica State Beach offers up not only miles of waterfront, surfing and biking paths to its star-studded community, but also a number of adjacent parks with endless opportunities. Santa Monica Pier provides an ideal spot for family fun, including amusement rides, a video arcade and restaurants. Climb aboard the pier’s Ferris wheel, or take a spin back in time on a 1920’s carousel. You can even keep both feet planted firmly on the ground while admiring a breathtaking sunset right along the pier.
