With so many fun things to do at Santa Monica Pier, there’s no wonder it’s one of the most visited attractions in all of Los Angeles.

Pacific Park

If you’re going to be at the pier, than you have to make time to head to this amusement park located right next to Pacific Ocean. Here, you can take in fantastic sights of the ocean and the city on the only solar powered Ferris wheel in the whole world! This nine story attraction, is also the only over the water Ferris wheel in all of California. At the park you can also enjoy a five story roller coaster, carnival games and attractions and more.

Aquarium

You’ll find the aquarium located under the historic carousel at beach level. This is a great place to take your family, especially if you have little ones as it offers hands on exhibits and interactive presentations. You’ll learn about the sea creatures that call the Pacific Ocean home as well as learning ways to help keep our natural environment clean.

Ocean Front Walk

Kids of all ages will enjoy this wide, paved footpath that travels south from the Pier along the coast. Your kids will likely appreciate sandbox returning a concrete Viking ship within. Over in the grass area, there’s a fun, interactive dragon’s head that will keep your kids entertained. The walk is also lined with shops and restaurants so feel free to stop in for a bite to eat or to pick up some goodies from a nearby shop.
