Visited in late afternoon. Enjoyed the performers. Kids got a name sign made in Rainbow art which was really cool. Didn't get on any rides. Nice to walk the pier and take pictures.

Great place to visit for a family outing. Great place to take pictures while also a thrilling experience. It get's very crowded with guests so I would recommend if coming from recent flight to leave personal belongings at residency. The Santa Monica Pier aquarium right below the carousel is also a great place to check out when at the pier.

Loved the pier. The atmosphere was fun and crazy and busy. The view beautiful. Hard to park later in the day so earlier the better. Lots of good choices. Lots of entertainment. Glad we visited.
