Santa Monica is the place to be in Sothern California. Minutes from L.A. and major SoCal attractions, it still retains the charm of a quaint seaside town. And with an average of 340 days of sun each year, you can step from one of our Santa Monica hotels and enjoy the ocean breezes and discover endless outdoor entertainment.
First stop from your hotel is the Santa Monica beach, with over 3 miles of pristine oceanfront and over 8 miles of scenic bike trails. Be sure to check out the Santa Monica Pier, the city’s premier attraction which bustles with things to do like arcades, an amusement park, a carousel for the kids, restaurants, outdoor concerts and a trapeze school.
Next it's time to head to the Third Street Promenade. This street is for pedestrians only—perfect for strolling along and window shopping for inspiring art, fine jewelry, toys, and games. Restaurants such as Locanda del Lago abound, while fortune tellers, dancers and other street performers entertain the crowds. Or, check out the Farmers' Market for a treat for the senses.
Still can’t decide where to go start your adventures in Santa Monica? Hotel guests should grab an Art Trek map for a scavenger hunt-esque walking journey around the city in search of the 37 public works.
