Santa Monica

A famed resort town since the early 20th century, Santa Monica sits on the picturesque Santa Monica Bay, bordered on three sides by the city of Los Angeles.
Visiting Carpinteria State Beach and El Matador State Beach will get you outdoors. Appreciate the collections at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and The Reagan Ranch Center - Young America's Foundation. Venture out of the city with trips to Malibu (Leo Carrillo State Park and Beach, Malibu Pier, & more), Santa Barbara (Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, & more) and Ventura (Ventura to Ojai Paved Bike Path, San Buenaventura Mission, & more). Pack the 22nd (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Spend the 11th (Sat) exploring nature at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. There's still lots to do: stroll through Santa Monica Beach, take in the waterfront at Main Beach, kick back and relax at Butterfly Beach, and don't miss a visit to Santa Monica Pier.

For other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Santa Monica itinerary builder.

Expect a daytime high around 76°F in October, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
