Classic boardwalk feel on the west coast. Fun place to take people from out of town to enjoy the sunset

End of the trail at Santa Monica pier. Where Route 66 ends and the Pacific Ocean begins. Take a ride on the merry-go-round, grab a bite, fly the trapeze, try your luck on a boardwalk game, take a ride on the roller coaster, or simply take in the beauty that is Los Angeles, California.

This is the amusement park located on Santa Monica Pier...whether you want to ride on the small roller coaster or the Ferris wheel or the other rides here, or take part in amusement park games of chance or just get something quick to eat, you can do it here at Pacific Park.

This kid-centric small-scale amusement park sits right on Santa Monica Pier, stretching out into the Pacific Ocean at the western edge of LA. Most of the rides won't thrill adults or even teens, but taking a ride on the solar-powered Ferris wheel around sunset or after dark is one of my favorite things to do in this beach town.

Crammed into a small space, overpriced, lacking any unique rides Pacific Park can still be charming if you're with someone special.

Pacific Park is located at the end of Santa Monica Pier. It's a typical amusement park with rides and carnival games. It's cute, but VERY crowded.

Pacific Park is a really nice area on Santa Monica Pier. It looks really cool when the lights go on. However, no matter how nice this place looks, it does not make up for the fact that everything here is so expensive! They have chains like Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Coffee Bean, etc., but all these places are overpriced. I guess it's expected though since this is located at the beach. There are games and rides here as well but the tickets to play these games and get on these rides cost a lot! Pacific Park is a nice place to hang out with friends or visit as part of a date, but just don't expect anything to be cheap. Just try to enjoy the atmosphere and have fun.

Fun for the whole family. And a nice place to go on a date. There's a ferris wheel, and docks where you can go fishing. Plus, there are arcades and restaurants.
