Santa Monica is the perfect place to live in a city while still getting the walk around in your swimsuit small beach town vibe. There is so much to do here and while I think we have experienced a lot, there are still lots of delicious restaurants we have yet to try and more places to explore. So here's a start to our favorites in one of the most well-known beach spots in the world. And if you're looking for somewhere to stay, I would definitely recommend Shutters On The Beach.
