Fun Things To Do In Santa Monica, CA

Attractions, Sightseeing and Events


Santa Monica Tourism and Sightseeing
Santa Monica is quintessential California, the one that everyone dreams of, with our world-famous beach, soft white sands, sparkling Pacific waters, meandering bike trails, and historic Pier. Sandy shores lie alongside trendy dining venues and couture-loving fashionistas mix with surfers and paddle boarders. Water enthusiasts enjoy the temperate waters off the coastline and with more than 300 days of sunshine a year, our beach is continuously irresistible. Santa Monica softens the edges of the big city experience, offering instead a relaxing alternative and a deep ocean-air breath of what the Los Angeles region has to offer.  Skip to Best Places to Stay.
