Local’s Guide Santa Monica

Posted July 15, 2016

You might have seen photos of Santa Monica Pier and the beach – and they are fabulous – but there’s a lot more that sets Santa Monica apart. While I love Los Angeles and think that it’s one of the most vibrant, fast-paced cities in the world, Santa Monica stands out because of its laidback atmosphere. The residents here are well known for their healthy lifestyles and a preference to jump on a bike rather than into a car. We care deeply for the environment – the Pacific Ocean is at our front door – and Santa Monica is consistently ranked one of the most sustainable cities in the world.
