I’m on California’s newest roller coaster ride, the Expo Line, as it dashes past neat houses and leaps over roads and liquor stores.
We’re staying right by the buzz of Santa Monica Pier at the hip Loews Hotel. It’s a sophisticated yet family-friendly retreat… The pier is a slice of Americana, a wild-eyed fun palace. Opened in 1909, within a decade it was the “people’s playground”, complete with an amusement park.
