Welcome to Santa Monica

Santa Monica (approx. pop. 92,000) has come a long way from the small seaside resort that cropped up on the west coast of Los Angeles in the early 1900s. Even though the city has changed in many ways over the years, residents still take pleasure in having a small slice of paradise to call their own. A thriving pier, dozens of restaurants, ample shopping, comfortable climate, proximity to all of the best beaches in Southern California, including Venice Beach and Manhattan Beach, and a family-friendly atmosphere make this town a favorite among LA locals. Santa Monica, which is cradled in the heart of the Santa Monica Bay, is bordered by Pacific Palisades on the north, Brentwood on the northeast, Sawtelle on the east, Mar Vista on the southeast and Venice on the south.
