My husband and I live in Woodland Hills. On the weekends we love to come down and walk on the strand. You can walk for miles and just relax. There are so many cute places to see, eat and just hang out. You can rent bikes or just sit. It is up to you!

This is where you go for some great Christmas card pictures of the kids! The sunset is spectacular here, and the general views are great. TIP: Bring a bottle of water as it gets hot in the sun.

Wheelchair accessible Pier. Beautiful day to watch the swimming events and enjoy the sunshine. No trouble navigating the walking path from the Pier.

Love the pier. It often crowded so running it is best early mornings. It's fun to go to the roundhouse aquarium at the end of the pier. You can see some amazing fish and its hands-on for the kids.

Can't wait to go back. I visited last Labor Day and spent hours visiting the lovely little shops. I enjoyed an Authentic Italian restaurant and had a yummy margarita at a quaint Mexican restaurant. The view from the pier was so relaxing I got the best tan while reading a book.

We loved walking down the pier and looking down at the water. The surfers are basically right under you.

A classic Southern California pier. Parking can a little more difficult compared to other Southern California Pier's but it is well worth it. It is not as busy or as over run as other piers but there are still great places nearby for some beer or food. There is a small aquarium and coffee shop at the end of the... More
