Best Things for Santa Monica Moms to do With Their Kids

For those that are lucky enough to call Santa Monica home or even to have visited, you know that Santa Monica is essentially a massive playground. With near-perfect weather all year round, stunning views, and endless activities, it’s hard to imagine a better place to raise children. Whether you’re new to the area, or simply aren’t sure of everything available in this beautiful city, here are our favorite things for moms of Santa Monica to do with their kids.


Santa Monica Pier and Pacific Park

You can’t miss Santa Monica’s iconic Ferris wheel that stands proudly over the ocean, reminding visitors that Pacific Park is the West Coast’s only amusement park built on a pier. It’s not everywhere you find roller coasters and a Ferris wheel that provide views of the entire coastline. The pier is also home to countless arcade games, restaurants and food stands, and fishing opportunities. In other words, it’s paradise for kids of almost any age.


Third Street Promenade

The Promenade is Santa Monica’s famed outdoor shopping area. It stretches for multiple blocks, and is closed to vehicles to make the experience easier and safer for pedestrians. Not only will you find stores that interest both moms and children, but restaurants of every cuisine and multiple movie theaters as well. A dinner and movie date with the kiddos is the perfect way to end a day of shopping. And our favorite thing about the promenade will likely be your kids’ favorite too; the street performers are on another level of talent, and seem to never take a day off. Count on them for hours of entertainment!


Main Street Farmers Market

With multiple farmers markets to take your pick from in Santa Monica, we have to say our favorite one for moms and their kids has to be the Main Street farmers market. It takes place every Sunday from 9:30am-1pm, and offers an abundance of fresh fruits, veggies, and flowers, as well as delicious prepared food. We especially love this farmers market because of how kid-friendly it is, complete with live music and face painting.
