"The Santa Monica Pier - sure,..." Santa Monica Pier Tip by bruingirl

Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica: 2 reviews and 1 photos

The Santa Monica Pier - sure, it may be a cool place to go just to say 'Hey, I've been there' and for the pure novelty of it. Needless to say, the Pier is now just overrun with teen gangbanger types with baggy pants. Sure, there are some interesting street perfomers here, but you can find them on 3rd Street and in Venice as well. It's dirty and there are MUCH nicer piers in Southern California. The crowd on the pier is definitely different from the crowd you would normally encounter on the Promenade.
