Grab the crew and head over to the Santa Monica Pier for a can’t-miss family fun experience. The kids will go nuts over this iconic attraction, filled with exciting rides, live entertainment venues, and casual, family-friendly restaurants. So let them get the sillies out among the flashing lights, nickelodeon tunes, and arcade games. Treat them to a famous hot dog-on-a-stick, where too much mustard is never enough, but not before taking them on a spin on the historic carousel and sky-high ride on the Ferris wheel. A friendly game of skeeball in the classic arcade will indulge the wee ones’ competitive streak, and with prizes ranging from handheld games to life-size stuffed animals on the line, you might just get in on the action yourself. Before it’s over, don’t forget to line up the brood and say cheese: the pier happens to be one of the top ten most Instragrammed places in the world.
