Santa Monica Pier
Perched over the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica, "The Pier" feels more like a carnival than a place to shop. Cirque du Soleil pitches their tent on the beach here annually, and there are concerts and dances on the weekends in the summer. In addition to the many restaurants and souvenir stands, there is a full-service amusement park with a roller coaster, ferris wheel, merry-go-round and arcade. The pier's end provides one of the best sunset views in Los Angeles County. Call for further details.
How hard would it be for Santa Monica to have respect for the seniors, handicap and others who spend all day getting front row seats for the Twilight Dance Series to have the vip section standing in front of them? I suggest 10-12 seats across in the vip section and people who stand on the sides. Please help!
The Santa Monica Pier is a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. There are some rides, a beautiful carosel, and the thrill of walking out over the pacific ocean, looking back at the California coastline.
My family was bored so we paced our van up and headed for the pier. Awsome place, love the roller coaster and the sea dragon also the scrambler. Food is good and neat. Nice service and hospitality. I definetly reccomand this to anyone.
I had seen this pier in movies for so many years that when I actually saw it in person it made every movie come to life!!! It is such a great place to visit, the excitement, the scenery, the beautiful beach. I think the ambiance of the whole area is worth seeing at least once in a lifetime.
I spent 10 days traveling through southern California and besides whale watching, Santa Monica Pier was definately the best part of my trip. The little shops are full of neat keepsakes, and the local artists are amazing! I even got to watch a boy reel in a giant horseshoe crab out of the shimmering ocean. While riding the rollercoaster I felt as though I was in a scene from a book. When we left the pier, we walked along the boardwalk and spent time watching the locals on the gymnist bars and rings. If you are looking to have a wonderful afternoon in sunny California this is the place to go!
Fun to look around and people watch. Games and rides if you’re interested. A great place to walk along the beach, foot showers –always a plus when traveling. The beach is nice but the water is too cold for my southern style. You have to pay for parking but plenty to do for free if you want to walk around or do the beach thing.
this is my second year in a row i came to santa monica with my girlfriend.. it gets better every year for me... this is the most beautiful place i have ever been,,,,the beach is awesome,,,,hotels are good...shopping.. everything is close by..I am looking forward to my next trip to santa monica....
I lived in Santa Monica for 1 month between June 30th untill the end of July.As I just turned 21 I wanted to go partying but there is little of that here as everywhere not only in Santa Monica but all of Cali closes at 1.30.Weekends in Santa Monica were acceptional.Lots of people from the outer suburbs would come into Santa Monica to visit the beach they have here.The weather is some what weird.As I am Irish I thought California weather would be perfect,well not in Santa Monica.Most of the time it would be over cast and never that hot.What I would recommend is renting out mopeds.There was 3 of us in a group and we got to see alot of not only Santa Monica but alot of the Californian coast between Malibu to Hermosa.Plus the girls loved it.Don't be discouraged when you see people in there big fancy cars.At traffic lights these people would ask us where we got them and were jelous of how much fun we were having weaving in and out of traffic.
