A famed resort town since the early 20th century, Santa Monica sits on the picturesque Santa Monica Bay, bordered on three sides by the city of Los Angeles.
Head to Rodeo Drive and Third Street Promenadefor some retail therapy. You'll get in some beach time at Santa Monica State Beach and Santa Monica Bay. Get out of town with these interesting Santa Monica side-trips: Six Flags Magic Mountain (in Santa Clarita), Malibu (Zuma Beach, Paradise Cove, &more) and Manhattan Beach (in Manhattan Beach). There's still lots to do: take in the waterfront at Santa Monica Pier, contemplate the long history of Old Mission Santa Barbara, take in the awesome beauty at Santa Monica Mountains, and cruise along Mulholland Drive.

For photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Santa Monica road trip planning tool.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 76°F, and evening lows to 65°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
