If you enjoy history like I do, I highly recommend that you check out Santa Monica City Hall. The building has beautiful architectural details that are reminiscent of a bygone era. There are real wood accents and art deco details that are noteworthy for anyone that has an interest in history and buildings. So many things in Santa Monica are changing, it's definitely worth stopping by City Hall to view the beautiful lobby. It's also worth your time to spend a few minutes reflecting on the beauty of Ken Genser Square in front of the building. It's a great place for photos and to take a short break to rest your feet. This is a family friendly location with clean public restrooms.

We were in the park to the west of the building which is a super nice place. My daughter enjoyed the seagulls who were drinking from the fountain out front. Fun to watch them fly over the building and make a precision landing in the fountain. The building is a bit stark, but nice to see they haven't torn it down to build some elaborate glass structure.

despite its classic spanish exterior, this place is as boring as it gets. unless you're looking to grab a building permit oro have city business, there is absolutely no reason to ever enter this place.

A very chic 1930's structure with lovely murals in the lobby. The new Tonga Park an exceptional architectural creation is across the street. The place is high end artsy. Would one expect less from Santa Monica? No never !
