Touring Santa Monica

The next stop on my Santa Monica tour is the Santa Monica Pier.  Buzzing with people, there are roller coasters, arcades, performers, food, and much more!  It’s like a minnie circus on the water 🙂

View of the beach from the pier.

Then we walked up the bluff to Shangri la Hotel so we could check out the view of the pier from their roof top.  Shangri la is an upscale art deco style hotel that is absolutely gorgeous!  They have a great view from the roof, so I grabbed a glass of wine and enjoyed the view.

It was a little chilly up there so we headed down to the pool area.  During the day they throw big parties here and the word is it’s a lot of fun, tonight it was a quiet place to sit with a lovely bonfire 🙂  I absolutely adore the style and decor of this hotel, so well done!!!  You can see the rooftop lounge and patio on the left side of the building.

And because I like things that are shinny….. Here are a few photos of the Ferris wheel lights!

All and all it was a very lovely day in Santa Monica and I loved
my personal tour 😉  Thanks Bishoy!
