The 100-year-old Santa Monica Pier is a wildly popular summer spot for kids of all ages in Southern California.
Located in western Los Angeles County, the pier is home to Pacific Park, an amusement park anchored by a large Ferris Wheel. The pier is also hosts a carousel from the 1920s, several arcades, and a popular trapeze school.
Popular with fishermen, Santa Monica Pier has also been immortalized in Hollywood, serving as the setting for summer scenes in many hit movies and television shows.
