Palisades Park

Walk along the palm and eucalyptus-lined paths here and it becomes obvious why tourists flock to this oceanside park in Santa Monica. Nestled between the beach and Ocean Avenue, this bluff-top trail has stunning views of the ocean and Santa Monica Mountains this is the postcard picture of LA’s coastline that lives in most people’s heads. Steer clear of the tourist and homeless-ridden section by the pier though don’t pass up a stop at the Camera Obscura and instead head north past the stately concrete sculpture at Wilshire to the colorful totem pole at San Vicente.
