Santa Monica and Beach Towns

Kids playing on Santa Monica Beach
Santa Monica is a great place for strolling and getting into the laid-back feeling of southern California. Marina del Rey is boat city – sail boats, motor boats, sport fishing and whale watching cruises. Kids prefer to stay on land? White sand Venice Beach extends for miles and Malibu is the perfect spot to catch the endless summer.
