<p>Santa Monica, just a little north of <a href="/contikipedia/articles/venice-beach-los-angeles">Venice Beach</a> in <a href="/contikipedia/articles/los-angeles">Los Angeles</a>, has featured in songs, movies and television for as long as <a href="/contikipedia/articles/hollywood-los-angeles">Hollywood</a> has been the center of the movie-making world. The beach is wide and sandy and very popular with locals and tourists alike while the iconic rides of the Santa Monica Pier are arguably the most famous attraction in the area.</p>
