Santa Monica Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Santa Monica, California - CA, USA)

A seaside beauty barely large enough to call itself a city, Santa Monica successfully combines beachfront fun with an effortless laid-back character. Crowds of discerning tourists choose this spot as the destination for their summer vacation, partly due to its proximity to Los Angeles. In fact, it is something of a suburb to the sprawling giant of LA.

Tourists in Santa Monica generally congregate around the pedestrianized Third Street Promenade, with its lines of familiar shops being accompanied by street entertainers. Other areas of interest include Main Street and Montana Avenue, as well as the city's Museum of Art, the Bergamot Station Arts Center, and of course, Santa Monica Pier, where a historic carousel, large Ferris wheel and aquarium attraction await families.
