Santa Monica: Come for an Hour, a Day, a Weekend Stay

To me, Santa Monica is a Shangri La of Los Angeles.  A paradise of green grass, ocean views and comfortable temperatures year-round.

It’s hard to imagine while enjoying a walk in Palisades Park, a delicious lunch at a sidewalk cafe on Montana Avenue, or shopping at the Third Street Promenade, that the urban landscape of downtown Los Angeles is only 15 miles away. Related: Santa Monica Daycations

Pacific Park in Santa Monica bills itself as the west coast’s only amusement park on a pier.  Free admission makes it an appealing place to people watch and cool down on a warm So Cal day! Read more
