Family Fun In Santa Monica: What Not To Miss

From its wide, sandy beaches to an activity-packed pier, there’s no place quite like Santa Monica for a family-friendly getaway that parents and kids will delight in. To make the most of your Southern California escape, UK-based parenting website Junior recommends staying at a hotel as family-friendly as the area itself: the Fairmont Miramar.

“Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows is a great base for families, with connecting rooms, one-bed suites with sofas, an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi and 24-hour room service with children’s menu,” says Junior. It’s the perfect jumping-off point to discover all that Santa Monica has to offer, including the new Cayton Children’s Museum, Tongva Park, and more.

Explore Junior’s recommendations for can’t-miss Santa Monica activities that kids will love here.
