There are many things to do in Los Angeles.  There is Hollywood Boulevard walk of fame and Venice Beach that are tourist attractions.  But one of the best places in L.A. to go to is Santa Monica pier.  It has over 1/2 dozen amusement rides, and people can purchase a day pass.  It is also possible to buy tickets for just one ride.

There are other things to do on the Pier.  There are arcades, restaurants, and even a carousel.  A visitor can lie on the beach and swim in the ocean around the pier too.  Santa Monica has really upgraded to a exclusive neighborhood.  There is also ‘3rd Street Promenade’ in walking distance from the pier.  The Santa Monica pier also has vendors selling items or offering games and services to visitors.

It is a good place to go when traveling to Los Angeles.  There is parking available, yet it does get crowded.  Visitors can rent bikes and ride the bike path to Marina Del Rey.  Santa Monica is also known as ‘Silicon Beach.’ Many tech companies have moved to this area that has pushed up the rent for apartments.  There are still tenants giving in the area that have rent control.  Santa Monica’s sister city is Culver City.

Santa Monica has become prime area to live and play.  It hasn’t always been this way, but it has become quite trendy.

It is suggested that Santa Monica be a on your list of places to visit.  The area is currently building train access.  The train is designated to travel as far as San Bernardino County.  So there is no reason to rent a car in Santa Monica, if visiting the area.  Santa Monica is its own city that has everything to offer.

The area is zoned for no smoking, so those that smokers cannot partake on the beach or even in their cars.  This area is comparable to Rodeo Drive, when it comes to shopping.  Santa Monica used to be a surfer and skateboarding town, but has become quite posh.  Allot of new money has flowed into the city.  It is a multi cultural place to visit with a variety of restaurants.  When making plans to visit Los Angeles, the Santa Monica area should be on the list.
