    Santa Monica Stairs

    Outdoor 'gym' Went up 5 sets of stairs! woot woot! It's a great workout indeed :) Make sure to stretch before, during and after so you won't hurt your self. There area 2 stairs near each other, wooden and concrete. I think the concrete one was a better workout because it seemed longer to go up. Wooden one is popular ...

    Temescal Canyon Trail

    8 reviews

    As someone who wasn't used to living in such a busy metropolis as L.A., finding the Temescal Canyon Trail was like finding a $100 bill in my Cheerios! This beautiful trek remains my favorite day hike in the immediate Los Angeles area. Rising into the wild Santa Monica Mountains at Temescal Gateway and into Topanga State Park, there's a feeling ...

    Santa Monica Farmers' Market

    35 reviews

    A local’s favorite, the Sunday Market has plenty of eclectic lunch and breakfast options alongside fresh juices, produce, and artisanal offerings. There’s also live music as well as pony rides for children and various arts and crafts. It can be hard to decide between an award-winning apple melt grilled cheese sandwich, a savory French crepe, an Indonesian rice dish, or ...

    Third Street Promenade

    90 reviews

    I could spend all day here. It has all the stores that you'll probably find at any other mall, but the stores seem bigger and not cramped, and you get to walk around in the fresh air on the open streets. Also, there's so many more restaurants and stores (that aren't chain stores) that you could explore surrounding Third Street. ...

    Palisades Park

    4 reviews

    One of my favorite places to go walking on the Los Angeles coast. Plenty of street parking nearby, with paved walking paths that wind around the clifftop bluffs within view of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Beach. Start at the southern end of the park where you'll find the Route 66 endpoint marker and a camera obscura upstairs inside ...

    Bergamot Station

    10 reviews

    Bergamont Station is one of my favorite places in LA; the perfect place to go when you're itching to do something but don't feel like spending money. I'm surprised at how few people know about it still because it's such a gem! Basically, its an art complex comprised of 30 or so diverse galleries all featuring new art. Check out ...

    LA has an amazing Yoga culture - the teachers are top notch. This was my favorite studio when I lived in the area. Right near the beach, nice sunny studio and really good instruction for any level.

    Santa Monica Pier Aquarium

    2 reviews

    This eco-conscious little aquarium below the Santa Monica Pier is a great place to take little ones and younger kids to learn more about the Pacific Ocean and local marine life. It's worth a detour inside just for the tide-pool touch tanks!

    Second time here for a friend's bday bbq on fourth of july weekend and it is very clean and have a nice area for exercise and kids to play at.

    Pacific Park

    9 reviews

    This kid-centric small-scale amusement park sits right on Santa Monica Pier, stretching out into the Pacific Ocean at the western edge of LA. Most of the rides won't thrill adults or even teens, but taking a ride on the solar-powered Ferris wheel around sunset or after dark is one of my favorite things to do in this beach town.

    Santa Monica State Beach

    3 reviews

    The scenery is nice, with a full view of the Santa Monica Bay. The surf is so-so but still pleasant to look at. This beach's problem is unavoidable but greatly lessens its appeal - too many people.

    Santa Monica Place

    35 reviews

    This is a huge improvement over the old indoor mall. The new outdoor mall has all the stores you could want (Nordstroms, Bloomingdales, Louis Vuitton). I personally love skimming through all the fun books and unique merchandise at Kitson and finding some fun collectibles at Tokidoki.
