Santa Monica is an amazing city. Theres a lot of fun things to do there. You can go to the beach, visit the pier, drive up and down pch. The food is amazing and the weather is outstanding.

It's always sunny in Santa Monica, what you have to remember though that it gets cold when it's dark, but it's warm weather!
You hear about incidents but you are very unlikely to physically see it or be involes and out public service officers work hard at making sure it doesn't affect residents and our tourist.
