Santa Monica Spring Travel Guide
Welcome to our neighborhood — where oceanfront views abound, local destinations beckon, and three-and-a-half miles of sun, sand and turf combine for the perfect spring escape.
Whether you prefer beaching or biking, Santa Monica Beach is the perfect stop for your first day on the town. Find a spot in the shade or visit The Strand, where you can walk, bike or rollerblade along the harbors and piers that we call home. When it’s time for a rest, soak in the views from the boardwalk at Santa Monica Pier or head to Ocean Avenue’s Palisades Park.
Looking to kick back to kick things off? For a relaxing afternoon, head south of the pier to see the original Muscle Beach, just steps away from your home at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.
Next, if you can resist the pull of the tide long enough, indulge in a bit of retail therapy downtown. From the open-air shops and luxury boutiques of Third Street Promenade to the designer fashions of Santa Monica Place, your refreshed wardrobe will be second to none this spring.
By this point, you’ve probably built up an appetite. Top off each day in paradise with the flavors of Santa Monica — whether you’re raising a cold draft brew at Barney’s Beanery, living like a local over pier classics at The Albright, or treating yourself to light beachside Mexican cuisine at Blue Plate Taco.
So, what are you waiting for? You’ve got the itinerary. We’ve got the sunshine. All you have to do now is say yes to your spring break in Santa Monica.
