Favorite thing: It?s easy to see why Santa Monica is considered the first choice for a Southern California beach vacation. This seaside city blends the charm and appeal of a coastal getaway with an unforgettable beach and the sophistication of an urban center?a magnetic combination.
Santa Monica's stunning beach is the city?s greatest natural asset. Blessed with 3.5 miles of broad sandy coastline and more than 340 days of sunshine per year, Santa Monica serves as the perfect backdrop for the sun-kissed, fit California beach lifestyle

Fondest memory: With manned lifeguard stations, casual eateries, equipment rental spots, public fitness and activity facilities, a fabulous bike trail, wooden pathways for beachgoers with disabilities and warm days (daytime temperatures average mid-60s to low 70s F in winter and 80s F in the summer), it's not hard to see why Santa Monica State Beach is a favorite destination for people of all ages.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars

    Hi, I was here last year, I drove through Santa Monica bulevard listening "Surfin U.S" where they mention many beaches around but finally I was dissapointed when I got to the ocean. It was full of all kind of dirt so I fastly sprang to the shower. Hope that your (and our) beaches are in better condition. But the LA is definitely worth of visiting. Take care :)
