about Santa Monica Pier:
At the Pier, families may enjoy an antique carousel, loads of street entertainment, a fishing balcony, Pacific Park, the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, a trapeze school, souvenir shopping, and fun food. It is also a great place to survey the Pacific Ocean and take in the delicious ocean breezes.
Summertime brings the annual concerts on the pier every Thursday evening, and late summer/early autumn is generally when the kids' Saturday morning concerts kick in.
Parking Fee: $6-$10 per car, depending on the season. A short term lot is also available below the Pier for $1 per hour (maximum two hours), or there are meters along Ocean. Free city parking (up to three hours) is available in lots adjacent to the Promenade.
