A famed resort town since the early 20th century, Santa Monica sits on the picturesque Santa Monica Bay, bordered on three sides by the city of Los Angeles.
Santa Monica Pier and Ocean Avenue will appeal to history buffs. Relax by the water at Santa Monica Beach and Manhattan Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Santa Monica: Helicopter Tours (in Long Beach), Laguna Beach (Crystal Cove & Laguna Beach) and Santa Barbara (Wine Tours & Tastings, Old Mission Santa Barbara, & more). Pack the 7th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Six Flags Magic Mountain. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Hermosa Beach Pier, take in the pleasant sights at 26-Mile Bike Path, stroll through Newport Beach, and contemplate the long history of Greystone Mansion.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Santa Monica day trip planning website .

In February, plan for daily highs up to 65°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
