Yacht Harbor Sign. Early morning entrance to the Pier, with a sidewalk for pedestrians heading to the Pier. It was very busy at night with a bumper to bumper issue. The sign is lighted at night. Its a nice area.

With all the movies and shows you've seen this iconic sign/landmark; it's one thing one MUST SEE in their visit to SoCal!

Yes, for the selfie world, this is a perfect spot, to connect you to Santa Monica. While your GPS will know where you are, now, you will be at the iconic spot marking the city. Beyond that, not much else!

We had to get a picture by this famous sign at the ramp to Santa Monica Pier - it's a 'must do' when you're in the area.

This is real mandatory, your picture under or aside the sign! At night especially, many performers whether crazy or not, but funny people. Always crowded at night unless you go there by noon and not in weekends.

Dont miss the SMY harbour sign. Its a landmark. Not easy to get a picture without the crowd but its possible if you come early or of season

To me it's just a typical sign. Everyone was taking a photo here just like the Las Vegas sign. There is a lot of street stuff going on here including performers and food trucks, so I wouldn't miss the area.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
