Santa Monica, a city and beach resort independent of Los Angeles on crescent-shaped Santa Monica Bay, lies 15 miles west of downtown Los Angeles on the coastal plain that slopes gently southward from the base of the Santa Monica Mountains. Roughly rectangular in shape, some eight square miles in extent, it is encompassed on three sides by Los Angeles, and on the fourth faces the Pacific Ocean. Santa Monica has an air of small town ease and comfort, combined with the holiday spirit of a shore resort. This chapter describes points of interest in Santa Monica including Lincoln Park, Santa Monica Public Library, Palisades Park, and the Yacht Harbor. It also provides visitor information.
