Santa Monica is the ultimate Los Angeles neighborhood for coastal living and the epitome of the Los Angeles lifestyle. From The Santa Monica Pier, to endless stretches of sandy beaches, to shopping on Third Street Promenade and world class dining, to beach trails for biking, running & rollerblading, Santa Monica has something for everyone. It combines all the bustle of a vibrant city with the beachy vibe of a resort town and the creative energy that comes from a thriving music and arts scene. Santa Monica is centrally located with the ocean to the west, the Pacific Palisades to the north, Venice and Marina del Rey to the south, and Brentwood and Westwood to the east. A Sunday drive up the Pacific Coast highway will take you on a scenic trip past the Palisades and all the way to Malibu. For artists, athletes, musicians, entertainment and business professionals, families, and everyone in between, Santa Monica is a premier Westside destination.
