Took a stroll down the pier on a Saturday evening with hundreds of other likeminded visitors. Wonderful to see this iconic landmark in the flesh. Very touristy, lots of junk food and cheap souvenirs but enjoyed it all the same. Gorgeous views back towards the coastline from the end of the pier.

Must go when visiting L.A, Plenty to do here with the beach, view, restaurants, rides, games, fishing and people watching.

Definitely worth a trip. It's fun to just walk around and take it all that's surrounding you. A must-see while in Santa Monica.

We didn't think the pier had much to offer other than the 'Route 66' sign and some eateries (none of which appealed to us). Probably wouldn't bother again.

Beautiful view from the pier! My first time on the west coast and it was awesome! The pier is everything you expect from rides and restaurants to live entertainment! Plus I got a great deal on a T-shirt from a stand vendor!
