Had a great time strolling around the pier. True, pretty touristy, but the beach is pretty big and spacious!

Super touristy, but I mean, come on. It's the Santa Monica Pier. It's an icon.

It's touristy, but it's the Santa Monica Pier. It's like the Coney Island of the West Coast. It's and Icon. Go. Do it. Experience it.

Drove down Route 66 with my 9-month old son this summer and our last stop was the Santa Monica Pier. We had such a fantastic time on the boardwalk, taking pictures and people-watching. If you go there on a clear day you can get the most beautiful photos. Great Mexican restaurant at the end of the pier as well.

Yeah, there's lots of toutists here. But this never seemed to be a problem. The area is big enough for everyone. The beach is really nice, and so is the theme park. Take your loved one here and have lots of fun. Go on a date at the carnival, take a walk at the beach, eat at a really nice restaurant. There's just so much to do here. Hey, it's "the" Sta. Monica pier for a reason.

Great place to spend the afternoon. Beautiful pier with good street musicians performing. Great spot to fish, too, and nice beach.

Yep it's touristy as noted, but pleasant touristy and easy to stroll around and back to the Santa Monica shops.
