Santa Monica Stairs

24 locals recommend ·
Why locals recommend it
In a nice neighborhood near Pacific Palisades, this staircase is shorter than the Culver City Stairs, so it’s a different kind of workout, with quicker intervals. The place has a bit of a cult following. You’ll see groups of women doing high-intensity workouts with pushups and leg lifts. These stairs are a little shorter, so you can do quicker intervals. Most often you'll see people doing different versions of stair sprints. To really get the legs firing, you could add 30 air squats or jumping lunges in between sets.

If your i the mood for stair climbing this is the place. There are two sets of stairs to climb, look around you can go up/down one set and walk to the next to go up/down.

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)

Great place to work out if you like to run or walk stairs. Be ready to sweat. It can be very crowded.
