Lobster and shrimp are definitely the most signature dish on this restaurant, all are well cooked by fine chefs and delicious but it’s quite pricey.

The name Bubba Gump Shrimp Co was made famous by the movie 'Forrest Gump'. The restaurant is nice, especially for sea food lovers.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
