    So many people, very colorful!
    I think that the pier is the definition of California!
    If you have a chance grab your bike and bike on the beach!

    Nice place to hangout on a sunday. The pier is full of turists almost everyday, but it's still a great spot to visit.

    Like place to walk and enjoy a sunny day!

    If you like arcade games, they have a huge arcade here, so take some coins with you.

    If you are in LA/Santa Monica during the summer, be sure to check out the KCRW (LAs NPR station) hosted twilight concert series. Shows begin in July. http://www.santamonicapier.org/twilight/
