LAX Airport Guide

Santa Monica is mostly about being outdoors although it has a great arts and cultural facet too. Bergamot Station is where most people head, for the gallery, owned by the city, displays some cutting edge art from the world’s finest contemporary artists. Montana Avenue is where you’ll find the rich and famous of Santa Monica in a little street full of designer boutiques and luxury delis. Santa Monica Pier is a historic highlight of the city with a huge fairground, attractions, entertainment and of course great ice cream. If for nothing else, a visit is worth it for the view.
