Pacific Park Review

Built on Santa Monica Pier, extending over the bay, this small amusement area harkens back to the days of the grand Pacific Ocean Park (1957–67). Its attractions include a tame coaster, a large Ferris wheel, and a handful of rides that wildly satisfy the under-6 crowd. This isn't squeaky-clean Disneyland, so expect some litter and watch your personal belongings. Since the pier is riddled with nails and splinters, opt for sneakers over flip-flops.
