Santa Monica is famed for its iconic century-old pier where Route 66 ends and kids can have hours of fun on the carousel and amusement rides at Pacific Park or drop a fishing line off the pier. This Californian seaside resort is the perfect base for a family holiday from where you can tick off several Los Angeles bucket list attractions such as Universal Studios Hollywood, Knotts Berry Farm, Hollywood Boulevard and Hollywood sign and of course Disneyland. There is plenty to keep the entire family entertained without even leaving Santa Monica; rent a bike or roller skates and glide along Santa Monica’s Boardwalk, learn to surf or stand-up paddle board, fly through the air at Trapeze School at Santa Monica Pier, visit the Museum of Flying with its interactive exhibits or enjoy family time at Tongva Park.
