Downtown Santa Monica Free

Considered the focal point of Santa Monica Beach, Santa Monica Pier includes Pacific Park, a traditional set-up stocked with a Ferris wheel, aquarium, fairground games and cotton candy stands. On warm weekends, the stretch is busy with families, beach bums and gym bunnies, who work out in public at the original Muscle Beach just south of the pier. Lately, the Pier has played host to a number of outdoor film and music events, bringing a hipper clientele to the boardwalk.

How many places in the world can you ride a Ferris Wheel overlooking the Pacific Ocean while watching the sunset?  The pier combines carnival boardwalk fun on the pier while getting to setting a backdrop for a perfect date.

Busy on a lovely, sunny Sunday afternoon as you might expect. Great for people watching.

Obviously not disneyland, but a good place to go if you have a couple of hours in LA. The roller coaster isn't bad if not as ambitious as it could be and they do make an effort to give it a good marine park feel if that makes sence. It feels like something from the not to distant past but at its best a good verison of it.
