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.
Shop till you drop at Third Street Promenade and Santa Monica Farmers Market. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Santa Monica State Beach and Manhattan Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Running Horse Ranch (in Lake Hughes), Santa Barbara (Wine Tours & Tastings, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, & more) and Malibu (Charmlee Wilderness Park, Carbon Beach, & more). Pack the 17th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Six Flags Magic Mountain. There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Santa Monica Mountains, explore the landscape on two wheels at Carpenteria Bluffs Nature Preserve, wander the streets of Montana Avenue, and tour the pleasant surroundings at 26-Mile Bike Path.

To see photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Santa Monica tour itinerary maker app .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 58°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
