    Santa Monica
    Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
    balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
    thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
    roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the

    Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
    revelers scream with delight riding the roller
