The strength at George's is Italian - excellent pasta and seafood, pizza also very good. We drop by n the way to a movie or other local activity. Expresso machine broken the last time we went!

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a

thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
