Thanks to its perfect climate, stunning views of the Pacific, and Art Deco and Streamline Moderne buildings, Santa Monica feels like a permanent vacation. Take in eclectic concerts and nostalgic movies screenings on the bustling pier, grab a steak at the historic dive bar Chez Jay, and shop for boho-chic threads at Planet Blue on Montana Avenue. Eco-conscious, bike-able, and family-friendly, the local school district maintains eight public elementary schools, two middle and high schools, and top private schools such as Crossroads, New Roads, and Carlthorp, among others. Modern architects such as GrayMatter, Kanner Architects, and Michael Folonis Architects are based here and you’ll find plenty of Craftsman, Mediterranean Revival, Victorian, and Mid-Century Modern homes in the area (along with the controversial Frank Gehry House). Don’t miss La Mesa Drive, a six-block street, lined with gems like the historic Strick House by Oscar Niemeyer.
