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.
Get out of town with these interesting Santa Monica side-trips: Ronald Reagan Presidential Library (in Simi Valley), Santa Barbara (Wine Tours & Tastings, Santa Barbara County Courthouse, & more) and Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita). The adventure continues: take in the waterfront at Santa Monica Pier, hunt for treasures at Santa Monica Farmers Market, get a taste of the local shopping with Third Street Promenade, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.
