2. Visit the Santa Monica Pier

West of downtown Los Angeles lies Santa Monica Beach and its famous Ferris wheel. The three miles of shoreline provide countless hours of entertainment for locals and tourists alike, with great shops and restaurants. The buzzing pier harbors a rollercoaster, food vendors, and arcade games that will keep the whole family entertained. And there's never a bad time to visit as the beach averages 340 days of sunshine per year.
