Changing views of the Santa Monica Pier

In greater Los Angeles, the Santa Monica Pier is a well-described attraction and visited by many. As a boy watching tv-show exteriors and locations from southern California, I’ve always wanted to visit Santa Monica and its Pier. Yes, the Pier is a tourist trap, but I cannot resist either beach or the ocean.

I was staying with friends living in Santa Monica, and on a warm sunny February afternoon, I walked to the Pier in 20 minutes, and spent a number of hours communing with the Pacific.

    Gorgeous. I watched Baywatch as a kid (I know…), so I was always fascinated by California beaches. Thanks for showing me what you saw!

      Hi, Christina. I think most would agree that the Pier itself is worth a shot or few, day or night. But as you’ve rightly said, I wanted to show something a little different and just as worthwhile at and around the Pier. Thanks for reading and for your comment!
