Nothing so special, this place seems like Coney Island in New York area everything is focused on tourists.

Felt like a sardine, way busy on a Wednesday evening. The surface is rough watch your step. I wasted ice cream but not soft serve. Soft was everywhere but I did not find traditional ice cream :(

Family friendly a little tack, carnival games and crowd. We had fun. It can get a little cool at night. Felt very safe.

We spent the day here with our kids. Surfed, rode bikes and hung out on the pier with our dog. Weather was good and not to crowded. One of the street performers was playing that song and dancing (if you've seen him he's hard to forget)

Sorry but there are better places to spend your time. I did not enjoy the chaos of Santa Monica pier at all. This was my second visit and I only went reluctantly because friends I was traveling with had never seen it. Now they can say been there, done that and they have no desire to go back either. Also... hold on to your wallet!
