#MissKrisLovesLA: The Santa Monica Pier
A few weeks ago I made a list of all the tourist like things I wanted to do in LA over the Summer. I’ve live here for over 9 years and rarely take in all the exciting things this city has to offer. Number 9 on my list was to make a visit to the Santa Monica Pier… I can now scratch number 9 off my list! I made my way to Santa Monica and spent the evening riding rides, playing games, eating funnel cake and watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. I hopped on the Farris Wheel right as the sun was setting and I couldn’t help but notice how beautiful it was. I was capturing first hand the final moments of the day… lights out LA. It was breathtaking!
It’s been awhile since I’d made a visit to the pier. If you’re making a trip out to LA make sure you stop by. Here are my suggestions: The Farris Wheel at sunset, eat funnel cake, ride the roller coaster (sit in the front seat). If you’re a local like me, you have to make a trip for the free yoga classes and concerts on the beach!! All the details about the pier and pier related activities here.
