Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a

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
