Know More about this tour

Meet your tour guide at the Westside Pavilion and get comfortable in a late model, climate controlled vehicle as you discover some of the highlights that the West Coast has to offer.

Your group will begin the experience with a brief drive to the beautiful neighborhood of Venice Beach. Once a seaside resort town, this surfers paradise is crisscrossed with canals, just like its Italian namesake. Venice is the center of counter culture in LA and is home to some of the most eclectic and bohemian residents. Stroll down the vibrant Venice Boardwalk and enjoy its street vendors, artists and performers as youlearn about the birth of skate boarding and surfing culture and make your way towards the iconic Santa Monica Pier. Along the way you will see the "Baywatch" headquarters, Muscle Beach, pass by the local Freak Show (literally AND figuratively) and let the laid back ambiance of Venice Beach wash over you.

Youwill then head a few minutes north to Santa Monica and learn about its interesting history and how it was largely shaped by the Great Depression. On the iconic pier you will be dazzled by the local flavor: live music, laughing children, happy travelers and carnival noises will heighten your senses and you will quickly come to understand why this is a beloved part of the city. The famous hippodrome where Marilyn Monroe's ghost is said to roam will have you squinting at every woman dressed in all black with over-sized sunglasses and floppy hat. Try your luck at one of the carnival games and feel instantly transported back in time. The pier is modeled after New York City's Coney Island but it offers a certain West Coast flair that can only be found in California. Finally, snap a photo beneath the landmark sign and say you made it to the end of Historic Route 66 before we return to Westwood.
