Travelers and Activities

Beach holiday at its best

Santa Monica has a beautiful sandy beach where the famous pier is located. Another beach not far from the city is Malibu, where you can see unique stilt houses, film sets, surfing opportunities and many muscle-bound people. Also popular is Venice Beach, where various sports such as cycling, rollerblading and weight training are practiced in public spaces.

A paradise for shopping fans

You will find an incredibly wide range of clothing stores and food options on the city's largest shopping street, the 3rd Street Promenade, where a large shopping mall is also located. On the pedestrian zone there are boutiques of famous designers like Armani, GAP, Abercrombie & Fitch as well as Old Navy. Apple also has one of its largest stores in the Los Angeles area.

Santa Monica is the end of the historic Route 66, which started in Chicago and was once almost four thousand kilometers long. It is regarded as the first continuous road connection from east to west.

Top 3 travel tips

1. To the pier, the landmark of the city

The famous Santa Monica Pier dates back to the 1920s and today houses an amusement park with a roller coaster and Ferris wheel that is often seen in American movies. There is also an old horse carousel in the Looff Hippodrome building. Also worth seeing is the white-blue gate at the entrance of the pier, which is illuminated brightly in the evening.

2. Discover the oldest house and its history

Santa Monica was founded in 1875. The one-storey "Rapp Saloon" in Second Street, a building that once belonged to William Rapp of German descent, who ran a beer pub here, dates from this period. After the closure of the restaurant, the town hall of the town was housed here for a short time. Today the Rapp Saloon is one of the landmarks of Santa Monica.

3. Visit the church of the rich and famous

The modern Saint Monica Catholic Church is known above all for its prominent churchgoers. These include the actor and former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. It was also the site of the funeral of the actress Lucille Ball, who became famous through the television programme "I love Lucy" from the 1950s.
