    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Enjoy a pleasant walk in Santa Monica. We'll start on busy Ocean Avenue before turning and walking down to the Beach, where you will see acrobats and bodybuilders working out Muscle Beach and Chess players focused on a game in Chess Park. Then, we will go up onto the Pier where you can ride some rides, play in the arcade, or walk out to the end to gaze out over the ocean. The walk then takes you north on the beach, around the parking lot, over the famous Pacific Coast Highway, and into Palisades Park with spectacular views of the water and a rich history all its own.

    The walk starts on the southwest corner of the intersection of Colorado and Ocean, outside the Lobster restaurant. If you are looking at the Lobster, the sign for the Santa Monica Pier will be on your right.

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    Santa Monica Beach, Santa Monica Pier, Aquarium, Palisades Park

    Best time of day:

    Anytime during the day is good. Sunsets are spectacular off the pier.


    On the beach and on the pier, there is very little shade, so be prepared to be in the sun. There will probably be crowds, so be aware of your belongings at all times.

    The sites are lovely, I wanted more. But like the cotton candy sold on the pier, this tour needs more substance. Why not go deeper with historical stories (and not about the number of planks in the pier)? Or why not go farther by incorporating the nearby Third Street Promenade? Now that the TV show Goliath is filmed in the area, there are certainly more things people want to know about. I hope the guide revises and expands on this area well-worthy of a visit.
