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.
Explore hidden gems such as Meditation Mount and Zuma Beach. Explore Santa Monica's surroundings by going to Ventura (Ventura Pier and Promenade & San Buenaventura Mission) and El Matador State Beach (in Malibu). It doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape of Santa Monica Mountains.
