No movie filmed in Los Angeles is quite complete without a scene from Santa Monica Pier. Built in 1909, Santa Monica Pier is a must go to spot when visiting Los Angeles. From the famous roller-coaster to the ferris wheel, soft serve ice cream and magicians, you will want to walk the Pier once or twice before you depart. The Pier is always open, and always fun, year-round. But check with individual businesses for their specific hours of operation.
