  • Buy an ice-cream and sit under the palm trees, looking out across the beautiful Pacific Ocean. You will be pinching yourself to make sure you are not dreaming!  more »
  • A beautiful park that overlooks the ocean and pier. It's narrow, but long and is a picture taking must. Gorgeous flowers, trees and more. A great walk, but there tends to be homeless people...  more »

  • Breathtaking sunset views beautiful trees to take a nap under I love Palisades Park good view of the pier. Yes there are bathrooms there however they are the typical Beach bathroom just don't expect them to be spotless or well-stocked. Does filter water bottle Filling Station as well as water filtered water for your dog or cat and usually you'll find some street performers out there to keep you interested sometime some vendors selling interesting things and as well as the food trucks park along their the gourmet food trucks are great so there is lots and lots to do
  • Super cool place to chill, whether it be by yourself, or with a crowd. The views are as beautiful as it gets. Love to ride my bike up and down the paths they got on the beach. They go all the way through Venice going south. Alot of people over here biking, running, rollerskating and enjoying the weather. One of my regular places to go when I visit Santa Monica.
