  • A really fun place to walk around and get a bit to eat, or do some people watching. There is always some locals playing there music or selling goods there too. You can do some fishing from the boardwalk too. The rides are not too big, but still a lot of fun for kids. Always something fun to see and do here. It can definitely be busy during the high times of year. Parking was $10.
  • Had some fun on the rides, but what was even great to see was how the locals utilized the area. There were families playing volleyball in the sand, even into the evening. There were some people *secretly* partaking in some world famous "Cali cush"... There were families enjoying the boardwalk even if they weren't on the rides. It's a really nice place to see the sunset over the Pacific ocean as well.
  • Between the ice cream shops, novelty games you can never win, rides and quirky street performers, the Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier is retro Americana entertainment at its best! I love coming here with my husband for a sweet ride on the Ferris Wheel and bringing friends from out of town. There are beautiful views, interesting vendors and a whole lot of tourists. It's exciting to see visitors experience this place for the first time! Pro Tips: - Come around 6am for a quiet, solo experience and see the sun hit the beach for the first time! - Try the pineapple soft serve ice cream at Pacific Park - Ride the Ferris Wheel around sunset to see 360 degrees from the Santa Monica Mountains to Catalina Island!
  • Great place to go with the family. It's very crowded so hold small children tight and close! Lines for the rides on Christmas were extremely short which was great! It's chilly once you get out on the pier especially when the sun goes down.
  • Fun, but a little expensive for what it is. It's probably a great deal if you're a local and you do the annual pass. The kids enjoyed the rides. The tacos from the taco shop were really good for fair food.

Where to stay in Santa Monica

Santa Monica's hotels range from luxury to boutique, offering more than 3,500 rooms located at or near the waterfront. Staying at a beachfront resort can cost a bundle, so if you have a limited budget in mind, consider accommodations away from the water. Hotels just a few blocks from the ocean offer comfortable rooms with free Wi-Fi and cable TV at a fraction of the cost charged by their beachfront equivalents. For an even more affordable stay, consider one of the city's inns or motels.
