Santa Monica Beach Vacation Packages

Landing at Los Angeles International Airport? Pick up your bags, travel 7 miles northwest and you'll find yourself in Santa Monica Beach. When you're ready to start exploring, you'll be just 14 miles from the city center.

Get to know the area with some nearby tourist sites, including Sony Pictures Studios and Loyola Marymount University. Swing by Fisherman's Village and Venice Fishing Pier if you have plenty of time. To see a different side of Los Angeles, branch out to the adjacent neighborhoods Third Street Promenade and Main Street Santa Monica.

Santa Monica Pier is certainly one of the country's most iconic tourist sights, and it's just 0.3 miles away.

Make sure you spend time at California Science Center and Walt Disney Concert Hall while you're touring the center of the city. You might also like to investigate Microsoft Theater and Los Angeles Convention Center.

Like to learn something new? Bergamot Station Arts Center, Getty Villa, LA Louver and La Plaza de Cultura y Artes are some leading cultural attractions.

Meet other art patrons at Santa Monica Museum of Art and Skirball Cultural Center. Study the thought-provoking pieces and then relax with a coffee at a nearby café.

Wandering through the halls of a museum is an excellent way to pass a stormy day. Recommended ones include LA Louver, Watts Labor Community Action Committee, Los Angeles Maritime Museum & Around and Page Museum & La Brea Tar Pits.

How does dinner and a show sound? Book seats at a performance venue, including Kodak Theatre, The Acting Studio at Edgemar and City Garage Theatre.

Grab your golf bag and head to the local courses, such as Penmar Golf Course and Riviera Country Club. Practice your putting and then go to the clubhouse for a cold beer.

For a few family-orientated attractions, plan visits to Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, Broadway Theaters and Orpheum Theater.

The little ones will have a ball at OnRope Consulting and Pacific Park. Let them release some steam so you can all rest easy.

Ballona Wetlands, Malibu Canyon and Nicholas Flat Trail are some excellent places to slow the pace down and take a deep breath of fresh air.

Watch the seabirds soar at a pleasing coastal site, including Muscle Beach Venice, Venice Beach, Original Muscle Beach and Will Rogers State Beach. Remember to pack something to nibble on!

To see some local plants and wildlife, head out to Angeles National Forest and Descanso Gardens.

Nearby green spaces include International Chess Park, Burton W. Chace Park, Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden and Mary Hotchkiss Park. Have a picnic or go for a calming stroll.

To shop with reckless abandon, head to the boutiques, stores and stalls of Santa Monica Place, Marina Marketplace, Americana at Brand and Jadis.

Peer back through the mists of time at Santa Monica College, Los Angeles National Cemetery, Chiat-Day Building and Los Angeles Maritime Museum & Around. These historic sites have a range of interesting stories and facts.

Whatever your faith, it's worth visiting San Gabriel Mission and Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine.
