If a picture's worth a thousand words then welcome to several thousand words about Santa Monica. 

We thought it would be helpful to give readers an idea what Santa Monica looks like with these pictures of Santa Monica, in case you're thinking of staying there for a day or two while driving the Pacific Coast Highway.

Santa Monica is one of our favorite stopping places when driving up or down the coast. It's right on the edge of Los Angeles and easy enough to get into the city, but you have the advantage of staying by the sea, and being able to enjoy Santa Monica Pier and its beach.

If you're driving north, you've also got the worst of the Los Angeles traffic behind you, and you can start driving along the coast right from Santa Monica.
