Discover Santa Monica

Coast to Coast Fun

Southern California is famous from coast to coast for relaxation and fun. On that front, Santa Monica delivers. But that doesn’t mean the good times begin and end with our beaches. From an open-air shopping district to world-class sports events, there really is something here for everyone. So take time to check out the La Brea Tar Pits with its huge collection of ice-age fossils. Enjoy the oceanfront amusement park rides at the historic Santa Monica Pier. Bike, blade or jog along Muscle Beach's 26-mile paved strand, where surfers, performers and vendors line the path. Or search for your favorite stars along the Hollywood Walk of Fame in nearby Los Angeles. Plus, The Getty Center and Norton Simon Museum are not to be missed.

At Loews Santa Monica, our expert staff can help make your stay even more memorable. Contact our concierge for more things to do on your trip.
