On the Pier
And here you are. On the pier. Turn left and walk out toward the water with the flow of people.
The Santa Monica Pier opened in 1909 and was the first concrete pier on the west coast. It was originally built to transport sewage out past the surf line. Don’t worry, in 1928, a sewage treatment plant opened in El Segundo, so the pier is no longer used for sewage.
