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.
Get out of town with these interesting Santa Monica side-trips: Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita) and Ronald Reagan Presidential Library (in Simi Valley). There's still lots to do: take a leisurely stroll along Santa Monica Pier, examine the collection at The Getty Villa, browse the different shops at Third Street Promenade, and look for gifts at Magicopolis.

For where to stay, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Santa Monica trip maker .

In December, daytime highs in Santa Monica are 65°F, while nighttime lows are 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
