Yes, it is dirty, cold and often foggy. But the Bay is a great urban space at the nation's edge. You can ride your bike for miles along the beach front. In the afternoon, the light here is magnificent as it hits the water and the hills. That light is unique.

Santa Monica is a nice city located near LA and next to the Pacific Ocean, at night the city looks really interesting, take a walk thru the city and go to the beach and the Pier is real nice to have a walk on

I loved this place, beautiful beach and scene. Definitely worth it. Take as many pictures as you can. It was the first time I saw the pacific ocean.

It kind of looks like every beach in US that I ever visited - long and sandy :)
But this one has some charm. It has couple of places to buy food or drinks and it's very lively so I would definitely recommend to visit :)

We drove from Malibu along the Pacific Coast Highway-beautiful. Parking was only 6 bucks at the pier and that was pretty cool, too. It was all better than I thought, after seeing the Hollywood Blvd area first. I'm from Chicago, so that's where Rt 66 starts and they have a sign on the pier marking the end. Street performers and artists selling their goods. It was awful windy. They views were amazing, watching the waves pound the shore. Clean beach and pier.
