Ocean View Avenue, says it All😎🇺🇸. The reason to go to California is to enjoy a Drive along the Coast of the Pacific.PCH. It’s what I Love about going to California for. Riding along the “PCH pacific coast highway “. 👍😎🇺🇸

City of Santa Monica needs to clean up this place. Tons of drug addicts laying around and homeless people that need help. Doesn't seem like businesses help out.
