Holidays To Santa Monica

Pack your sunnies and your best boardies and leave the ’tude at home—you’re going to Southern California! Our Santa Monica deals make it easy to channel your inner surfer dude (or dudette).

In this beach town on the west side of Los Angeles, you won’t have to choose between hitting the sand, taking yourself shopping or just celebrity-watching all day (we won’t tell). Take in a bit of culture at the historic museums and movie theatres—it’s near Hollywood after all—to round it all out. With Wotif, there’s no wrong way to holiday. The only requirement is that you come back home happy!

Things to Do in Santa Monica

It should go without saying that Los Angeles gives good beach, but we’ll say it anyway: you’ll get all the sand, sun and sea you can ask for here. Santa Monica State Beach is the place to go for a relaxing time lounging under an umbrella or jumping through the waves. Once you’ve baked yourself to an even tan, get changed and hit the pier. No holiday in Santa Monica is complete without a trip to this old-fashioned amusement park, if only for a ride on the iconic Ferris wheel and the views to Malibu and access to the Third Street Promenade.

Take a stroll past shops for your obligatory souvenirs, followed by a happy hour drink (or several) at one of the beach bars scattered up and down the street. Test out your board strategy at Chess Park, where locals go for breakneck matches conducted by keen competitors.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Santa Monica is basically Los Angeles, so yeah, you’ve got plenty of places to spend your hard-earned dinero. If you want to stay local, a visit to the Third Street Promenade has to be high on your list. This gorgeous outdoor mall is the place to be for live entertainment, good grubbing and all sorts of retail goodies. Find the perfect pair of shoes for that beach party you got invited to, or stock up on postcards and jewellery to send home to your mum. Need more variety? Snag one of our Santa Monica car hire options and make your way to Rodeo Drive to explore the finer things in life—or, you know, to window-shop.

While you’re on your Santa Monica holiday, be sure to sample plenty of the Southern California beach cuisine, which features fresh seafood, loads of ripe avocado and bright, fresh flavours. You can stick to the Promenade for food, or wander down the many beachside bars and restaurants to find the perfect meal. Want to cook your own grub? The Santa Monica Farmers Market is held every Sunday, and is loaded with fresh produce for you to experiment with.

Your Santa Monica holidays aren’t complete without testing out the nightlife, right? Of course not. This area is littered with bars, especially along Santa Monica Boulevard and Ocean Avenue. If you’re looking for something a little more exciting, head to Main Street for nightclubs that only start to liven up when the sun goes down. Of course, this is technically LA, so you can always head inland to one of the famous clubs on Sunset Boulevard. If you make it as far as Hollywood, you might even spot a celebrity!
