Los Angeles is famous for a multitude of reasons and one of the most fun and famous is Santa Monica and its boardwalk planked pier; loaded with rides, restaurants, and arcade.

This beautiful seaside town, located south of Malibu and north of Venice Beach just off Coast Highway offers three-and-a-half miles of coastline, an average of 340 days of sunshine a year and a quintessential California beach experience.
