We went early and the area was not crowded. Overall it was far from amazing but if in the area, I wouldn't hesitate to visit again. $12.00 parking, free entry onto the pier. We didn't eat meals or ride rides on the Santa Monica Pier but we had Dipping Dots, Icee, while strolling, shopping, and watching the children play games. Bathrooms were clean. Boat pulling parachute over the beach and man with snakes selling photo opportunities at entry. Not certain the "Do Not Enter" entry that will slice all tires is adequately marked so pay close attention to signage.
