Spend a Day at the Santa Monica Pier

Added by Natalie F

A must do when you are in Santa Monica. There's something for everyone here

*Unlimited photography options with the ferris wheel, beach, ocean, and sunsets

*Abundant people watching opportunities 

*Plenty of ways to get a workout in including swimming, volleyball courts, running, or riding a bike

There is a bike and walking path that runs along the coast.  One of my favorite things to do is walk the path and look at the beach houses to the north, or head south and check out Venice Beach.  Watching the skaters at the world famous skate park in Venice Beach is fun. You don’t want to miss Muscle Beach either.

Cool pier

Cool pier to walk around and explore, it reminds me of the boardwalk in Santa Cruz. Looks cool at night with all the lights
