Fortunate People in a Fortunate Land

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. Home to a mixture of Hollywood celebrities, surfers, and students, Santa Monica is a prosperous city, its real estate values among the priciest in the world. Located just 24 km (15 mi) west of downtown Los Angeles, "SaMo," as the locals call it, provides those on vacation with a convenient base for excursions into the surrounding area, including the local landmark pier. The city offers not only hundreds of hotel, restaurant, and entertainment options, but also easy accessibility for trips to other popular communities along the coast, including Malibu and Beverly Hills, where the list of things to do is endless. To personalize your trip to Santa Monica, create itinerary details specific to you using our United States trip itinerary planner.
