Santa Monica, California
The Santa Monica Pier is full of great views and fun activities for people of all ages. First you have to stop and see the giant historic carousel, and then stop inside the shop nearby to see the old school soda fountain! There is also the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, which is tucked right underneath the historic Carousel building. Next, go to the end of route 66 were it meets the sea, and see the great little gift shop that is full of cute gifts and trinkets. Then, stop by Pacific park where you can ride the iconic pier roller coaster. There is also tons of games and other rides in the park as well. Lastly, take some time to stop by the Oatman Rock Shop(http://www.oatmanrockshop.com/), which is full of historic shells, crystals and more.
