Beach was clean and beautiful, well maintained. They have a great bike/walking trail. Santa Monica pier is right there to explore when you get tired of the beach. Great visit.Wonderful Restaurants around and shops;

This trip, it was just my husband and I, no kids, and we still had a blast!!! We rode the ferris wheel at night, which is a must do. I was pleasantly surprised by the cost - $25 for an unlimited wristband and games seemed to be $3 each. Not bad when compared to other places I've been to like this. The SM Pier is about a billion times nicer and cleaner than Myrtle Beach, which is the most recent "boardwalk" type area I've been to lately. It's not huge by any means, but a lot of fun and a must do when in the area. We didn't eat there, but seemed to be many dining options to chose from.

A landmark that must be visited. Fun games in the arcade, beach, food, and an amazing view. Very cool. Short walk from the parking garages.

Beautiful area, great for people watching. Food is pricey, as expected. I would definitely go again.
