“You've seen this pier in numerous movies. A small amusement park on the pier, restaurants, shops, etc all over-looking the cliffs of Santa Monica and the Pacific Ocean. If you want to test your strength head just south of the pier to the playground sized for adults. Try your hand at the rings, parallel bars or rope climb.”
