HAVE NO FEAR WHILE AT THE PIER; HELPFUL CITY TIPS

Sure the Santa Monica Pier is probably one of the most happy and fun places west of Los Angeles, but that also means that it attracts people from all walks of life. You will definitely want to be cautious of your surroundings at all time, especially at night as it’s best to travel together and stay on well-lit paths. Be mindful of suspicious characters at night, while most may be harmless, you don’t want to take your chances by encountering any danger.

The Santa Monica Pier is a non smoking area because the pier is made out of wood and that is definitely a fire hazard if someone chooses to be careless after smoking. Luckily if you are a smoker, you can take your last puff and toss your cig into a designated box at the entrance of the beach for safe and proper disposal.

Just be cautious because some charge higher rates than others. You may have to walk a bit if you find a cheaper garage, but that’s not a big deal because you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the atmosphere. That’s also why it’s good to choose a hotel nearby the pier like Lowes Hotel that’s just a stone’s throw away from the excitement.
