The heart of Santa Monica’s sunny, beach-y personality is the 100-year-old Santa Monica Pier. With a free amusement park, a historic Carousel dating to 1922 and an aquarium, Santa Monica Pier is a main attraction for visitors and locals alike. The Pier itself is full of entertainment from the amusement park to the street performers and vendors. Big-name musicians are known to grace Santa Monica Pier with performances, and throughout the year traditions, like the annual Santa Monica Pier Paddle Board Race and Roller Coaster Ridin’ Santa, keep things lively.

 Both on and off the pier you will find fresh seafood and dining options for all palates. Once you have explored the pier, the city of Santa Monica – just a short drive from Los Angeles - will keep you endlessly busy. The city itself, with the help of features like Santa Monica Pier – is a hotspot for California culture something, again, equally enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
