    Slightly crowded, the scenic view is amazing. If you are taking uber go out to the street and take, Drivers may get confused.

    This is a great family-friendly place that is mixed with both amusement park rides and games, and it's good for a romantic stroll around the pier! There are breathtaking views of the sunsets, too!

    everything perfect about LA rolled into one, with the tourist-infested bustle of Venice and elitist seclusion of Malibu within walking distance in either direction

    Is a beautiful place, stop there and take some pictures. The sad part for me was that the wind is very strong.

    A great spot to look at the ocean and look at the beach stretch miles around to the north and south.

    PokemonGo stats are lousy during concerts. STAY ON THE PIER ITSELF, so you won't be disappointed. Lots of lure action and heavy gym combat and gym sniping!

    The Santa Monica pier is truly amazing. Especially the arcade! Visit the Arcade if you are looking for retrogaming goodness

    Avoid if you do not like crowds. This is where Michael Douglas' character D-Fens meets his demise in the 1993 film "Falling Down."

    Crowded, but a must-go place. If you have the time and like to walk, it's lovely to go to venice Beach by the beach.

    Walk down to Venice beach. Or don't if you want to skip visiting the west coast's Jersey Shore.

    It was extremely crowded place with zero romantic feelings as I though when I was watching to a photos on Internet. This is too commercial place. Manhattan Pier is MUCH better!
