Jenni of Just Chasing Rabbits gives some reasons to visit the Santa Monic Pier. I can think of a dozen more, but really it’s because it’s fun.
I’ve been to Santa Monica Pier three times now. The first was when beginning a transcontinental odyssey. We’d driven down from San Francisco, we wanted to take a look at an American icon before heading up to Las Vegas, and we had a whale of a time, exploring and taking photographs and stuff.
