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.
Explore Santa Monica's surroundings by going to Santa Barbara (Wine Tours & Tastings, Santa Barbara County Courthouse, & more), Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita) and Ventura Harbor Village (in Ventura). Pack the 21st (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Knott's Berry Farm. Next up on the itinerary: take a leisurely stroll along Santa Monica Pier, take in the pleasant sights at 26-Mile Bike Path, hunt for treasures at Santa Monica Farmers Market, and browse the collection at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
