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: Ventura (Ventura to Ojai Paved Bike Path, Four Brix Winery, & more), Ojai (Ojai Valley Land Conservancy, galerie102, & more) and Santa Barbara (Wine Tours & Tastings, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, & more). Pack the 4th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Six Flags Magic Mountain. On the 26th (Tue), enjoy a day of scenic exploration at Zuma and Trancas Canyons. Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Santa Monica Pier, explore the landscape on two wheels at South Bay Bicycle Trail, examine the collection at The Getty Villa, and take in the pleasant sights at 26-Mile Bike Path.
