Welcome to Santa Monica

Beach Front Vibes

The quintessential Los Angeles city, Santa Monica is home to the neighborhoods of Sunset Park, Ocean Park, Wilshire Montana, North of Montana, and Rustic Canyon. The beachfront city is surrounded by Brentwood, the Pacific Palisades, and Venice Beach. Santa Monica usually enjoys cool breezes blowing in from the ocean, making the hot days of summer bearable while cutting down on the smog. The beachfront city is also home to some major companies like Miramax, Lionsgate, Hulu, and Universal Music Group as well as historic and famous spots like the Santa Monica Pier and the Third Street Promenade.
Additionally, the 90404-90411 zipcode reports lower than average crime rates, making the area ideal for families. With shopping, dining, and the pier just minutes away, this city feels more like a tight-knit community. 

Parks and Rec

Santa Monica is home to numerous local parks that feature tennis, courts, basketball courts, and walking paths, but the Palisades Park and Tongva Park are the most well-known, featuring favorite walking areas for locals to view the ocean and public art, benches, picnic areas, playgrounds, gardens, and restrooms. The Santa Monica Stairs, located north of San Vicente are a popular spot for outdoor workouts.
