Santa Monica's Famous
Santa Monica Pacific Park7
Why locals love it
This little amusement park has the old fashioned Coney Island feel, with the warm sunshine weather. The rides are placed on the pier with a wonderful beach view. The park is known for the incredibly tall light up Ferris wheel, a mid sized roller coaster, and some more traditional carnival-like games and mini rides.
Why you should visit it
This spot is known for more than just its rides, the park is a historical landmark of Los Angeles for over 100 years. The park is placed in the middle of the pier between stores, bars, and a fishing spot; making it the perfect spot for any age.
You can buy a wristband for all day rides for a lower price than the tickets sold.
