Santa Monica and Redondo Beach

Santa Monica State Beach

East of the Los Angeles metropolitan area lay a sunny, sandy getaway known as the Santa Monica State Beach. A California State Park, this is a two-mile stretch of shore found along the Pacific Coast Highway in the beautiful city of Santa Monica. Visitors may swim, surf, and show off their skills with a game of volleyball. Enjoy sunbathing on the beach, catch up on some reading, or pack a picnic lunch.

Santa Monica State Beach also has many paved paths perfect for biking, jogging and sauntering along a glorious ocean view. For more fun, remember the Santa Monica Pier accompanies the beach – the epicenter for retail, restaurants and rentals. Check out fishing gear for an afternoon on the Santa Monica Pier, or pick out a souvenir to remember your time in southern California. Explore the visitor’s center at the historic Annenberg Community Beach House, or rent a bike for a trek down the 22-mile South Bay Bicycle Trail. Surfing and boogie boarding is encouraged year-round, but best experienced during your stay in Santa Monica.

Looking to head in for the day? Make your way to the Best Western hotel in Santa Monica, found less than three miles from the Santa Monica State Beach. If you’re not staying in Santa Monica, Best Western hotels are found throughout Los Angeles, from Sunset Beach and Norwalk, to outskirt locations like Phelan, Moreno Valley and San Bernardino.

Bring your fishing pole to cast into the ocean and try your best at reeling a fish in. Or, enjoy watching others trying to reel in a big one. The Santa Monica hotel is a perfect location for strolling along the pier and for visiting the Third Street Promenade. Have fun while in the Los Angeles area.
