Fun pub to pop into, they've got darts which is always a winner with me. However I would say avoid buying any imported whisky (I had a couple of Jamesons') as they are pricey. A single measure was coming in at $9! However that's my...More

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
