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.
Step out of the city life by going to Santa Monica State Beach and Santa Monica Bay. Venture out of the city with trips to Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita), Malibu (Nicholas Canyon Beach, Backbone Trail, &more) and Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley). There's still lots to do: shop like a local with Third Street Promenade, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Santa Monica Mountains, look for gifts at Bergamot Station, and find something for the whole family at Pacific Park.

The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Pacific Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference.
