    Visiting Santa Monica for a couple of days? Let us be your expert guide on fun activities the whole crew will enjoy.

    See The Santa Monica Pier - Visit the historic landmark that has been a Los Angeles prize since 1909.

    Stroll Around Will Rogers State Beach - Skip the busy beach next to the pier and head to Will Rogers for a quiet day on the Pacific Ocean. Pack a picnic for a unforgettable time under the sun.

    Catch A Flick At The Aero Theater - Feeling nostalgic? Catch an old-fashioned movie at the Aero Theater on Montana Avenue for an iconic Los Angeles movie moment. The flicks are seasonally themed, so get into the fall mood with a festive matinee.
