“The Santa Monica stairs are a local landmark. Great views with a great workout. Plus— why so many stairs? (oh right, it's on a cliff)”

Park
“For the creatives in you, this is a fun place to go to sit and write, journal or meditate and is a close walk away. It's not well known so you're sure to be alone most of the time :)”

“Nearest spot to walk down to the beach. Mostly bike friendly with a few steps where you have to carry your bike.”

Beaches

Pool
“This is the best-kept secret in Santa Monica. It looks like a private club, but is open to the public. They have a pool, volleyball courts, splash pad for little ones, restaurant and a boardwalk that goes all the way down to the water's edge. All the grounds are well-maintained throughout the day, which is not found in all places along the Santa Monica Beach. Their parking lots allow for hourly or daily parking, which is helpful if you are just stopping for a short time.”
