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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Third Street Promenade and Montana Avenue. Do some cultural sightseeing at Santa Monica Pier and Annenberg Community Beach House. Venture out of the city with trips to Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita), Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (in Simi Valley) and Santa Barbara (State Street Underpass & Old Mission Santa Barbara). The adventure continues: admire the majestic nature at Santa Monica State Beach, look for gifts at Bergamot Station, enjoy the sand and surf at Zuma Beach, and wander the streets of Rodeo Drive.

To see other places to visit, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Santa Monica sightseeing tool .

If you are flying in from Argentina, the closest major airports are Los Angeles International Airport, John Wayne Airport-Orange County Airport and Ontario International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Santa Monica can reach 28°C, while at night they dip to 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
