  • I can breathe in and out easier here, in Santa Monica. My skin can feel the moisture from the Ocean. My hair untangles on it's own. The sunsets are peaceful to watch. And, l look forward to another day.
  • Such beautiful views. Wish we could have hiked multiple days here, but we'll be back. So much to see in the area that it's difficult to decide what to do each day. The beach is amazing, as is the pier, and all of the surrounding restaurants. We've traveled here every year since 2013 and will continue to come back. Always something new to see and do!
