Not far away and yet a world apart, Santa Monica is the breezy, attractive sister city of Los Angeles. Homes in Santa Monica offer access to a pleasant pace of life and access to the Pacific Ocean.
Indigenous habitation and European settlement in Santa Monica dates back to the 18th Century. Santa Monica boomed in the 1980s, exploding as a satellite center of commerce, LA on the beach. Today it enjoys a strong separate identity—a small beach city, with all the amenities you expect from being adjacent to a world-class metropolis. Neighboring areas of Venice, the Pacific Palisades, and Malibu remain close by.
Nature still holds sway in Santa Monica, from the crystal-clear waters of the Pacific Ocean, to the sprawling 24 acres of Palisades Park offering miles of hiking and biking trails with stunning panoramic views of nearby LA and the ocean.
But there’s more than just nature to enjoy. The vibe of Santa Monica owes to its eclectic amenities, including Santa Monica Pier, an over-the-ocean shopping district and promenade that includes Pacific Park, the only amusement park in America built on a pier. Santa Monica also offers top-notch dining, nightlife, shopping, and entertainment along the famous 3rd Street Promenade and adorable Downtown, which connects to Los Angeles via metro.
Californians who choose to make their homes in this beach paradise live in luxury and contemporary condominiums, townhomes and houses in in a variety of architectural styles. The quintessential Santa Monica experience is the beach bungalow.
