Located along California’s South Coast, Santa Monica is bordered by the communities of Venice, the Pacific Palisades, West Los Angeles, and Brentwood. It also sits along the coastline of Santa Monica Bay, providing residents with 3 miles of beaches and stunning ocean views.

In recent years, Santa Monica has become the central hub of Los Angeles’ Silicon Beach, making it the perfect location for emerging businesses and thriving start-up companies.

The iconic Santa Monica Pier is a major tourism hotspot in the Los Angeles area, providing unparalleled recreation since the early 1900s. Artists gather at Bergamot Station, where you can find a variety of private art galleries as well as the Santa Monica Museum of Art. If you need a little retail therapy, the city offers three main shopping districts: Montana Avenue, Main Street, and the Downtown District.
