Just 15 miles west of Los Angeles, Santa Monica is a beachfront city with an enviable climate and location. North of Venice Beach and south of Malibu, Santa Monica draws millions of visitors every year. With its laidback vibe and plentiful amenities, it’s easy to see why.

The famous Santa Monica Pier houses an amusement park, an aquarium, an arcade, eateries, and much more. Right next to the pier is the Original Muscle Beach, a gymnastics and fitness site that’s been around since 1934. Nearby Third Street Promenade provides a range of shops, restaurants, and street performances in a pedestrian-only outdoor plaza.

Clover Park is great for picnics, Aero Theatre screens classic films, the Santa Monica Museum of Art inspires curiosity, and Harvelle’s showcases live music of various genres. The Marvin Braude Bike Trail is over 20 miles long, stretching the Pacific Ocean shoreline from Pacific Palisades to Torrance. The Santa Monica Mountains have hiking trails perfect for a quiet reprieve from the bustle of city life.

Convenient to I-10, I-405, and the Pacific Coast Highway as well as LAX, getting around from Santa Monica is simple.
