This is our list of the best amusement park rides found at the Santa Monica Pier!

5) Shark Frenzy

A favorite for the youngest customers, this ride was redone multitudes of times at the birthday. The fun shark heads swing around, while kids (and adults) find the spinning addictively fun.

4) Seaside Swing

Everyone enjoys swinging in the air with magnificent views of surrounding Santa Monica and Pacific Ocean. Launched in 2017, Seaside Swing is one of the most recent rides at the pier.

The coolest rollercoaster on the West Coast? Traveling 35 mph over fifty feet above the pier, this is a signature Santa Monica experience.

Blackhawk Limousine has provided Newbury Park and the larger Conejo Valley with limo service close to twenty years. Although most local clients book their limousines and party buses to head out of town, for example to LAX or Hollywood nightclubs, many decide to head out in Newbury Park. This lovely community of less than 45,000 residents may be mostly known as a bedroom community for commuters, but booking wine-tasting tours and limo rentals in the Conejo Valley is increasingly popular.

7. Climb the Santa Monica’s

Maybe the most accessible peak in the Santa Monica Mountains is Angel Vista, which can be reached from the Rosewood Trail. While the trailhead is located by Barranca Rd and Kathleen Dr, many hikers park at Stagecoach Inn across Lynn Road. There are also various hiking trails by Rancho Sierra Vista, for instance trails leading to Sycamore Canyon Falls and Boney Mountain. The top rated activity in town according to TripAdvisor is the Big Sycamore Canyon hike, which crosses the Santa Monica Mountains and goes all the way to the ocean. Wine tours by limos are common to destinations throughout the Santa Monica’s, including Malibu Family Wines, SIP Malibu Grapes and Cornell Winery.

6. Explore Native-American History

Satwiwa Native American Indian Culture Center is an ideal place to learn about the valley’s indigenous people. Situated on national park lands by Boney Peak, the Chumash Indians regard Satwiwa as a holy site which has been populated for over 10,000 years. Besides artifacts and hiking trails, you can also see the traditional Chumash houses, known as ‘ap. There’s also a Native-American display at the Stagecoach Inn, and the re-constructed Chumash village at Chumash Indian Museum in nearby Thousand Oaks is a must.

5. Go For A Drink

Named after Bob Hope, Hope Nature Preserve is situated in southern Newbury Park and can be reached from Lynn Oaks Park. Alternatively, the preserve can also be accessed by following the Los Robles Trail from Westlake Village or Thousand Oaks.

3. Fifteen Acres of Wetlands
