Sunsets under the famous Santa Monica pier. This was a quick 25 minute drive from Los Angeles airport and one of our favorite places we’ve ever had a romantic date! After strolling along the pier to get ice cream and riding the rides, we set up a picnic on the beach just in time to watch the pink sky light up.
