About Santa Monica

If you’ve never visited the Los Angeles area before, you might be wondering why Santa Monica is part of our tour. Santa Monica is just 8.3 square miles, and it has a population of fewer than 100,000 people, after all. So, why is it included in our top-rated LA day tour?

To answer that question, you simply have to consider some basic facts about Santa Monica:

  • It has stunning beaches. Santa Monica is home to 3.5 miles of breathtaking beaches, including Santa Monica State Beach and Will Rogers State Beach. When you visit a Santa Monica beach, you’ll often see people swimming, surfing, running and playing beach volleyball.
  • It’s a paradise for foodies. Santa Monica became an international dining destination as early as the 1980s as well. Culinary innovators continue to make the city a popular destination for food lovers. Santa Monica’s chefs were on the leading edge of incorporating organic, sustainable ingredients in the fare they serve long before doing so was the norm. You can find just about any kind of eatery in Santa Monica, including vegan restaurants, California fusion joints and steakhouses.
  • There is an abundance of shopping opportunities. Just as Santa Monica is a dining destination, the city is also a shopping destination. From global brands to boutique shops, the mix of retailers in Santa Monica reflects the city’s laudable diversity nicely.
  • You’ll find plenty of attractions. Santa Monica is where you’ll find some sought-after attractions. Here are some of the attractions that help to make Santa Monica so popular with tourists and area residents alike:
    • Santa Monica Pier
    • Pacific Park
    • Pacific Wheel
    • Third Street Promenade
    • Tongva Park
    • South Bay Bicycle Trail
    • Santa Monica Place
