The California coastline stretches more than 1,200 miles with more than 100 beach towns each with their own personality and unique appeal.
Now USAToday and 10Bestis pitting those California beaches against one another in a reader’s choice poll and Santa Monica is one of the finalists.
On the list vying for Best California Beach is our very own Santa Monica and its iconic pier with Ferris wheel and roller coast. Along with the gigantic stretch of soft white sand the beach has to offer, the Santa Monica Pier brings us back to a time long ago when many other piers like it with amusement parks dotted the Santa Monica Bay coastline. This timeless classic is still a great place to have fun with family and friends.
