LA: the City of Angels where the stars hang out. If you and your significant other are lucky enough to grace the same county they’re in, you’re in for a treat.

But if you’re not a local, you may be having a hard time coming up with romantic date ideas.

Thankfully, we’re here to help! Below, we’ve put together some key Santa Monica attractions you can enjoy yourselves at. Make it an unforgettable experience for that special someone!

One Of The Classic Santa Monica Attractions: The Pier

If you’re looking for Santa Monica date ideas, one of the obvious choices is the pier. The area can be fairly touristy, but it could still lead to a romantic time. If the pier itself is too busy, you could always take a walk on the beach below.

Planning on getting something to eat? Proceed with caution. A lot of the restaurants on the pier are packed with tourists. If you want a good place to visit with your partner, check out some of the places the locals go.

Bergamot Station Art Galleries

If you or your date are into art, one of the fun things to do in Santa Monica is to check out Bergamot Station. It is a complex of art galleries you can find near the 26th Street Exit from the Expo line.

Keep in mind that you can only visit certain galleries by appointment only. The good news is that admission is free.

They also have a great cafe where you can get a coffee or something to eat.

Hiking In The Hills

Are you looking for something to do during the day? The Santa Monica Mountains offer some breathtaking hiking trails.

If you’re looking for an easy, laidback hike that offers a great view, try the Will Rogers State Park. For a bit more of a challenge, why not try Temescal Canyon?

Ocean Avenue

Ocean Avenue is home to some of the best bars and restaurants in the city. It’s also conveniently close to a lot of other fun things to do in Santa Monica.

One thing to keep in mind is that the area has become a lot more crowded in recent years. If you want to spent a quiet evening with one another, it may be best to take your date somewhere else.
