The Santa Monica Pier

We travelled an hour and half to see the Santa Monica Pier. We arrived about 3:00 and ate a late lunch at Bubba Gumps Restaurant. The food was great and the atmosphere was fun. We have one in Charleston, but it was nice to eat at another one on the opposite coast. After, we walked to the end of the pier, checked out some shops, and enjoyed the sites of the beach. It was so much fun to see. It was a nice and sunny day, but very windy as well. We didn't worry about riding the rides since we were going to Disneyland this week.

Next, we drove around the Hollywood and Beverly Hills area. Since we were losing daylight when we arrived, we decided not to take any tours. Instead, we thought we would just walk on Hollywood Blvd for a little bit, especially since we were parked in meter parking for an hour time limit only. Along the way, I took some pics of the famous stars on the walk. We walked as far as Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and got stopped by a sales rep who offered $24 off our total to get in. How could we refuse!

After we got out of the wax museum, we walked down to the Chinese Theater and took some pictures of the famous footprints!!!! It was late, so some of my pics came out a little dark! Hopefully I will have a chance to take some in the day!!! We got to the car way after our one hour time limit! I was glad we did not arrive at the vehicle to find a parking ticket! LOL

This was extremely fun to do. This was about $25 per person, but a tourist guide gave us a discount. The wax characters were really great and they act… read entire review
