Get to know Santa Monica with Viator

Santa Monica enjoys the sun and fun lifestyle of Los Angeles without the urban jungle feel, making it a prime destination for lazy beach days, walkable shopping excursions, and meeting friends in trendy vegan cafés. The beach is the main draw boasting easily accessible sandy shores, nearly four miles of paved beachfront paths, workout viewing at the original Muscle Beach, and some old time fun at Santa Monica Pier.
