Santa Monica Pier
Continue straight along the pier.
In 1919, they realized the concrete piles underneath the pier were too porous, so they were replaced with wooden ones. And in the 1930s, the concrete deck was replaced with wooden planks.
Today the deck has 18,444 wooden planks. There are 2, 032 piles holding up the pier; 1,667 are wood and 365 are concrete.
Carry on walking along the pier.
