The unique city by the sea. The city and residents have a slightly wacky reputation for their progressiveness and desire for the unusual. It doesn't get much better than this for culture, arts, and entertainment. Great shopping, and fine restaurants such as Chinois on Main, Michael's, Drago, Valentino, and Rockenwagner, the little cafes on the Third Street Promenade. And let's not forget the fabulous newly redone Santa Monica Pier with it's new amusement park. Home to Movie Stars and the eclectic.
