Santa Monica is a fun beach town right by Los Angeles. I got to go to the Santa Monica Pier (SM Pier) where they have a roller coaster, bumper cars and other carnival games. There are also restaurants located on the pier. In less than a year, the SM Pier will be celebrating its 100th birthday! All of the locals know where it is, and it has been featured in many television shows and movies over the years. The most famous scene featuring the pier is probably in Forrest Gump when he runs across the country and gets to the end of the pier only to turn around.
Here is a picture of me with the SM Pier, the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), and the Pacific Ocean all in the background. The PCH runs up and down the coast of California and includes some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world!
