Travel Insider: Santa Monica, California
Why is Santa Monica a good place to stay when visiting LA?
Its incredibly convenient location – it’s just 15 minutes from LAX and close to Beverly Hills, Hollywood and Venice. Its small size makes it easy to get the most of local attractions, restaurants and shops by foot or on a bike, without ever having to get into a car. Overall, it’s a great base to explore the rest of Los Angeles – especially with the new Metro Expo Line, whcih connects Santa Monica to Downtown Los Angeles in just 45 minutes…
